Tempers flared late during last night’s Bengals-Steelers wildcard playoff, as several Bengals players lost their composure en route to a stunning 18-16 loss. This same lack of composure was displayed by fans inside of Paul Brown Stadium with three Bengals fans and three Steelers fans being arrested for various crimes during the game.
According to reports, a combination of two Steelers fans and one Bengal fan, punched three separate women during various altercations in Paul Brown Stadium. The remaining three assailants had individual altercations in which a man was urinated on, another punched, and a victim that was struck by a beer can.
This incident adds another chapter to one of the most intense rivalries in NFL history. Heart broken Bengals fans can take solace in the fact that only one of their supporters is accused of striking a woman.
Jared McCarty, 19 (Bengals Fan) is accused of falsification, underage drinking, theft, and assault.
Phillip Ross, 29 (Bengals Fan) is accused of assault.
Martin Cooke, 33 (Bengals Fan) is accused of disorderly conduct and assault.
Tyler Matthys, 21 (Steelers Fan) is accused of assault.
David Grillo, 25 (Steelers Fan) is accused of assault.
Andre Robles, 28 (Steelers Fan) is accused of assault.
