Besides the fighting happening on the ice at the Winnipeg Jets game last night, it looks like things got physical in the stands as well.
And when I say physical, I’m talking about a dude was nearly sent to the afterlife.
In the wild footage, you can see a dude putting a guy in a headlock, with a woman fighting people in the background.
It looks like the guy in the headlock tries to spin out of it.
As he’s trying to spin out, the two end up falling down the steps, and the guy who had the other in the headlock slammed his head against the wall… HARD.
It appears that he was knocked unconscious when he made contact with the wall.
According to CBC,a 34-year-old man from Winnipeg and a 28-year-old woman from The Pas face multiple charges.
The fight occurred around 9 PM, and they were causing such a ruckus that players from both the Jets and Colorado Avalanche stood on the ice watching.
Police say the altercation was likely fueled by, shocker… alcohol.
Security at the Jets’ arena, Canada Life Centre, were called to the lower section of the bowl due to the disturbance where a man and woman were uncooperative and assaulted security staff, which was a 50-year-old man and a 36-year-old man.
Fans tried to step in and help security, including a 54-year-old man who had the scumbag in a headlock. This is, until they took a tumble and the bystander suffered a serious head injury against the boards.
The 34-year-old culprit then made his way back up the stairs, but the 54-year-old stayed nearly motionless, waiting for medical attention.
Jeremiah Kornelsen, who was a bystander during the fight, told the outlet:
“I’ve never seen anything like this at any event, really, in the city, whether its a Bomber game or a concert or whatever.
Obviously, people get intoxicated all the time, and usually they just get asked to leave and they leave. This was a lot more.”
It’s believed that the man and woman who started the fight will get a lifetime ban from the arena, and facilities ran by True North Sports and Entertainment, which owns and operates both the Jets and Canada Life Centre.
The assaulted Jets fan was taken to hospital to treat his injuries, he's fine. Two intoxicated Avalanche fans were arrested in Winnipeg last night and charged with: 4 counts of assault, assaulting an officer, resisting arrest. pic.twitter.com/Fqz8lTA07S
