Kyle Adam Maraghy and will face charges after a video went viral of him assaulting another fan at the Panthers–Eagles game Thursday night:

From NBC Sports:

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department announced that it has arrested Kyle Adam Maraghy and is taking him to Mecklenburg County Jail. He is facing a charge of simple assault.

The Panthers were able to identify Maraghy and helped the police:

Update: Here’s his mugshot:

Here’s the brutal video if you haven’t seen it yet. According to the witness, Maraghy refused to sit down the entire game, leading to the fight with the reported season ticket holder in white:

dude bro & his chicka were standing for the entire game. words gradually got more and more escalated. there previously was a single mom and her son between us, they left halfway through the 3rd. after that, the lid was off. the dude took offense to the couple never sitting down and obstructing his view. the victim telling the dude bro how they’re being jerks and how rude they are for not sitting. the dude bro turns around and calls the victim a “geriatric fuck”, “faggot”, and “hick”. then sucker punches him right in the face. i don’t know if he got away or left in handcuffs, but i hope it’s the latter. edit: to clarify further, both the puncher and punchee were wearing Panthers attire. The assailant was seated in section 541, row 24, seat 10.
