A brawl reportedly broke out prior to the NFC Championship game that required riot police and ended with at least one Eagles fan bloodied and under arrest.
According to Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com, the fight broke out in the parking lot of Lincoln Financial Field. It got so out of hand that six officers on horses, as well as state troopers, had to be called to the scene to get the crowd under control.
The brawl was reportedly between Eagles fans and police officers.
“The fight was between Eagles’ fans and the police officers, and it doesn’t appear any Vikings’ fans were involved,” Shorr-Parks wrote. “The incident, which required Philadelphia police officers and Pennsylvania State troopers to get under control, left at least one fan beaten and blooded.”
