Carolina Panthers Fan Who Attacked Eagles Fan Arrested; History of Violent Allegations

Police identified Maraghy as the man seen punching a 62-year-old fan in the face during a game between the Carolina Panthers and Philadelphia Eagles.

A video and series of photos were posted on Instagram. He is being taken to jail.

Twice since 2013, he has been arrested for assault, with one time being assault and battery, but details on the incidents were unavailable.

This isn't the first time we've seen a video of violence in the stands of an National Football League game.

The victim was accompanied by Gene Sherba, an Eagles fan from Mount Laurel who was attending the game with his college friend and Panthers fan, CBS Philly reported.

CMPD said the assault stemmed from an argument because Maraghy was standing during the game.

Vols fall to SC , 15-9
With less than seven minutes left in the third quarter, the teams each had less than 70 yards passing for the game. But after 3 straight incomplete passes the time expired as SC sends Tennessee to 3-3 and 0-3 in the SEC.

Carrigan said the incident happened in section 541.

In the video posted online by Warren Carrigan, a man in a Cam Newton jersey identified as Maraghy is seen repeatedly punching the older man in the face.

The NFL told Ian Rapoport it's working with the Carolina Panthers security team - saying, "We take all of these very seriously".

The NFL is also investigating the incident. Charlotte police are now working to find the man and arrest him. The authorities said on Friday afternoon they had a suspect.

"The Carolina Panthers are committed to a fan-friendly and family-friendly stadium experience", Emory said in the statement. "The behavior exhibited by the perpetrator is unacceptable and will not be condoned at Bank of America Stadium". Several other fans jumped in and tried to break up the fight, but the attacker and the woman quickly left the stadium.
