SAN DIEGO — Several disturbing videos surfaced Sunday night that seem to depict a Denver Broncos fan being beaten by multiple San Diego Chargers fans during an event outside San Diego.

The videos, posted to YouTube and initially reported by Deadspin, were reportedly shot at a Chargers rally in National City, Calif. Amid a rowdy crowd, a man in a Peyton Manning jersey is taken to the ground and pummeled by as many as three attackers who seem to be Chargers fans.

Police officers eventually descend on the crowd to break up the melee. Several people were arrested, according to local media.

Full details of the incident were not yet available, and it was not clear if the fight was consensual or an unprovoked attack.Β In one video, the victim appears to enter the fight willingly. In another, it is less clear.

    I don’t even know what to say, it’s getting out of hand, there was a stabbing at Sports Authority at Mile High a couple weeks ago that had nothing to do with the game. I think someone was breaking into a car and got caught by the owner. There are people that just have to ruin it for everybody and are just out there to cause trouble. It’s just a game people and I think alcohol has a lot to do with the fighting. Maybe they should ban alcohol and the venders that sell it for $6.50 a bottle of beer and 10 bucks for a drink will be crying in their soup!!! Also people drink to much and can’t handle it and act like fools.

    This was in National City on Highland Ave. Charger fans gather to celebrate a win or the end of the playoffs. I am honestly ashamed of the incident because no matter what, violance is never an answer. (This is why we have sports, friendly compitition) The guy provoking people at a rival team rally is foolish and to taunt people.

  • Rob

    Looks more like a riot crowd than a celebration… Either way all the more reason to conceal carry. Never know when someone might not like your shirt lol…

    I hate donkee fans but jumping him is stupid. Ghetto chargers fans. Makes us raider fans look good..raider nation baby. Later haters

  • Jim

    Reminds me of what happens to Giants fans when they show up at Lincoln Financial field for an Eagles game. We actually have a judge on duty in a courtroom built into the stadium to arraign people on the spot for fighting. Beat that, every other team in the NFL. Hahaha.

    The denver radio stations LOVE to TALK SMACK about OTHER teams constantly on their stations egging them on and when they get a beat down… Then they talk about how we should respect each others team _ I think they should give away free fighting lessons with their jerseys cause they ALWAYS get beat up!!!!! & you NEVER see another bronco fan helping out just watching or running

  • Broncos SUCK

    Smoke another on air heads, Only a stupid person would go to another teams rally and talk smack them get a beat down then cry about it !!!!

  • chargers
