Sunday night’s blockbuster (and hugely entertaining) NFL game between the Chiefs and the Patriots was a one of the shining moments of the season so far, but it wasn’t without an embarrassing moment or two.
In the games’ dying minutes, Tyreek Hill caught a pass from Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes for an electric 75-yard touchdown to tie the game. As he celebrated in the endzone, some of the New England fans showered him with beer. To his credit, Hill didn’t react and seemed chilled out about the incident after the game.
Tyreek Hill on having beer thrown at him: “My coach told me, don’t get emotional, don’t get mad about it. It comes with the territory, you know? I’m not mad at all.” https://t.co/ujuJxTbw6D

He apparently changed his mind afterwards though, as his agent pressured stadium security and local police to make an example of the rowdy fan.
Tyreek Hill and Drew Rosenhaus want to take action against fan that doused the Chiefs WR with beer Sunday. They are talking to the NFL/NFLPA about options. “That type of behavior is unacceptable,” Rosenhaus said. “Players have to be protected. We want that fan to be prosecuted.”

Rosenhaus (and Hill, we guess?) got their wish.

The fan has been “disinvited” from future events at Gillette Stadium, which seems like a complicated way of saying he received a stadium ban. The man, a 21-year-old Patriots fan, has also been charged with disorderly conduct and throwing an object at a sporting event by the Foxborough Police.
