Bottles Fly in Post-Chargers Game Brawl

    Moments after the end of Sunday’s San Diego Chargers game, a fight broke out in the stadium parking lot that sent glass bottles flying between opposing fans.

    Two men were struck in the head with glass bottles and at least one person was hospitalized with serious injuries in the fight, which was caught on camera by two witnesses.

    The violent brawl broke out less than a week after a California man was fatally stabbed during a rivalry-fueled fight that followed a game between the San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers in San Francisco.

    Sunday's fight started in section H of the Chargers' Qualcomm parking lot between some people wearing Dallas Cowboys jerseys and Chargers jerseys. Watch: Raw Video

    What started as a verbal altercation escalated when a woman slapped a man in his face.

    Moments later, the video shows a man hitting the same Cowboys fan over the head with a beer bottle.

    As the crowd tries to break the two men apart, another man gets struck with a beer bottle over his head.

    The confrontation lasted about 25 minutes, according to witness Todd Bowen.

    Bowen was cut in his arm from flying glass.

    "The glass actually stuck in my arm about 2 inch, 3 inch long and of course I'm looking at my arm and I pull it out and it doesn't stop bleeding,"

    He said the paramedics asked him if it was a bullet wound. They just bandaged the arm and told him to get the wound checked by a physician.

    The woman who slapped a man was questioned and released Bowen said. San Diego police confirmed at least one person was detained.

    Native San Diegan Pete Rhoades has been a Chargers fan since the 1960s. He videotaped the fight and captured his friend, Bowen, getting injured.

    “It’s only a football game and I can’t understand why people would get to that point,” Rhoades said.

    The fight happened on the same day the family of the 24-year-old who was stabbed to death after last week's Dodgers/Giants game in San Francisco asked for the public’s help.

    Dodger fan Jonathan Denver was killed during a fight with a group of Giants' fans late Wednesday night.

    The suspect in the case, 21-year-old Michael Montgomery of Lodi, was released from jail Friday night after prosecutors said police had insufficient evidence to charge him in connection with Denver's death.

    Denver's family is asking witnesses to turn in any video of the confrontation that may have been recorded on a phone.

    San Diego police officers told NBC 7 there are fights and arrests after every Chargers home game.

    Qualcomm Stadium has an alcohol policy that limits beer sales during the game. There is a two-drink limit until the start of third quarter. After the third quarter begins, fans can purchase only one drink per visit to the concession stand. No alcohol is sold in the fourth quarter.

    According to the Chargers website, glass bottles are not allowed in the Qualcomm parking lot.

    The Chargers won the game 30-21.

    Anyone who would even consider getting violent over a football or baseball game is an idiot.

    Same here, sadly. One of the main reasons I didn't go after having surgery.

    After looking at the video, it appears that the both the dude who got slapped and the lady who slapped him are Cowboys fans (she's wearing the white shirt, he's wearing the Dez Bryant jersey). The short guy in the Chargers jersey seemed to be in there trying to break it up and had a bottle smashed over his head.

    The media seems to be spinning this as a team vs. team fan altercation, but assuming my observations are correct, that certainly wasn't the case.

    Either way, sports-related fights are f'n stupid and people need to calm down.

    Agreed EOTL from what I could see it was 3 cowboys fans causing the trouble, initial angry man, lady who slapped him and the random dude who smashed the first bottle over dude #1's head...

    No matter what team they supported it's ridiculous to behave that way - what jackasses.

    This stuff is sad. It should be a place to go and root for your team with your family, not anymore.

    Ahhh... the joys of Alcohol! People like this are gonna ruin it for everyone else, I foresee a ban of alcohol in the parking lot, similar to the ban at the beach.

    that will never happen as long as you can purchase alcohol. Besides how much money do you think the NFL receives from the likes of Coors, Miller, and Budweiser?

    I think he was referring to tailgating, not overly expensive in-stadium beer.

    Really insane. Some of the people that go to games really have limited mentalities. In response to an earlier post...Raider games are as bad as it gets.
