Description

In the wake of 9/11 and more recent terrorist attacks, the NFL has made fan safety at football stadiums a top priority. But we uncovered another kind of terror that's not getting much attention: fights caused by drunk, unruly fans. Our investigation revealed there are more reports of fights and assaults at Arrowhead than at stadiums in similar sized markets. In 2013, one of those Arrowhead fights claimed the life of a young man and father of a seven-week-old baby. His family and others assaulted at Arrowhead say there isn't enough security at the stadium to protect fans. http://fox4kc.com/2015/11/23/critics-say-violence-isnt-limited-to-collisions-on-the-gridiron-at-arrowhead-stadium/
