It appears that National Football League games are some of the most unsafe places to be these days.
A pregnant Los Angeles Chargers fan says a photo shows a Pittsburgh Steelers fan choking her on Sunday as the two teams faced off at Heinz Field. One of the men, wearing a Steelers jersey, then grabbed the woman around her neck.
Minshew said he and his wife, whose first name was not released in the Current's reporting, plan to pursue charges against the man with local police.
"[I get] heckled and yelled at prior to the attack, but for the most part it was nothing abnormal that I wouldn't consider uncustomary for an National Football League game", Minshew continued. "After the assault ... no security or presence of law enforcement was visible in the actual section and the only way we felt [we could] safely exit the stadium was with a large group of Charger fans".
Donna Bryan said the fan, who was not identified, shouted at her and her husband, Daniel Minshew, to sit down during the game.
The Post examined police data from the past five seasons, finding there were roughly 6.34 arrests per game league-wide during the regular season a year ago.
"As always, Heinz Field Management takes all incidents very seriously for the safety and security of our fans and will take the appropriate actions against the individuals that violate our code of conduct, " Heinz Field management said in a statement. "This type of behavior seen in the photo is unacceptable and something we do not condone on our property".
Pittsburgh ranked fifth with almost 17 arrests per game, behind Oakland, both NY teams, and the former home of the Chargers, San Diego.
