A Lakers Fan Pepper Sprays Jazz Fans; Police Looking For Suspect

Lakers Fan listen to me closely.


Yes, the team is 1-4, but there is no need to be sending death threats to Mike Brown’s son or peppering spray opposing teams fans.

According to the Salt Lake City Tribune, two angry Lakers fans were thrown out of the game last night against the Jazz for getting into several altercations with Jazz fans.  It started off as simple trash talk, but the police say the trash talking went too far and they were ejected from Energy Solutions Arena in Salt Lake.

Once outside they decided to hang around until one of the men unleashed a fog of pepper spray a Jazz Fan as as they left the arena.  After spraying the fan they sped away.

The police are looking for Latino man in his early 30s wearing a Lakers jersey. He’s about 5’6″ and 150 pounds, with Brown hair driving a Dodge Charger. Please contract the police if you see this guy, he and his buddy needs to be taken off the streets.

Here is the number to call 801-799-3000

  • Yeah sure do that in Utah…like to see them try that in Philly or NY….punk ass bitches

  • This is a repost. i originally posted on ksl.com:
    Before there are any judgements. I am a Jazz Fan being from Utah. My Boyfriend is a Lakers Fan being from LA.
    I was also there. I walked infront of the Jazz fans for about a block. There were four of them. only one of them seemed routy and very aggrivated. This One in particular stood out, his friend kept calming him and told him it was just a game. Then they continued to talk about how plastered they were. Especially the aggrivated one. His speech was inpaired and I could smell the liquor. As we walked they began talking about a “tough guy” and how he got kicked out. The man “assulted” began to say how he wouldve “kicked the guys butt” as we reached the street, the car the laker fan was in was going to turn right. Somehow, the laker fan in the car was the man they had been talking about for a block. They began to point and taunt the laker fan in the car. You could tell the laker fan was surprised to see the men aagain. The laker fan cracked the window and simply said, “whats up?” The Jazz fan then called the laker fan out of the car. At this point you could tell they remembered one another. The laker fan hessitated but began to open the door. By this time the Jazz fan had already left the safety of the sidewalk and was in the process of hitting the laker fan. It was obvious he intended to assult the laker fan. The laker fan then peppersprayed the individual. Then the friend that was trying to calm his drunk friend kicked the car the laker fan was in. Then the car proceeded with the right turn and drove off. Therefore, The laker fan did NOT initiate the fight OUTSIDE. I dont doubt there was an altercation inside, nor do i know who was at fault (inside the arena). What i DO know is that the laker fan was in the process of being attacked by the DRUNK jazz fan, and it was pure coincidence that they had ran into one another. The laker fan also couldnt have sped off as most of you are saying becasue the light was red, they were already in the turning lane, and there were pedestrians crossing the street and blocking the right hand turn they were trying to make. the laker fan was surrounded. I dont agree with this type of behavior, but if i was in the lakers fan situation i wouldve pepper sprayed the Drunk jazz fan as well.
    Its a shame that based on a Team Preference people are stereotyped. Jazz fans are just as loud, drunk, and aggressive as Lakers fans. Now if the story was turned, the Title of this article would read; Jazz fan is forced to use pepper spray in self defense against angry Laker mob”. Keep in mind, I too, am a Jazz Fan, Born and raised in Utah. As we left the scene, my boyfriend and I also discussed the matter with two other JAzz Fans, who also agreed that the Jazz fan was at fault here.
