One Michigan fan couldn’t keep his enthusiasm for victory in check after the 35-7 victory over Oregon State University.
According to College Football Talk, six fans in total were kicked out of the UM vs. OSU game on September 12th, but the biggest ruckus was made when a Michigan fan was removed after allegedly “grabbing or slapping” an un-named Beaver player as he walked off the field and headed into the locker room.
As if defeat isn’t already bad enough, now he has to deal with some over-zealous fan to rub it in?
One commenter posted on Mlive.com’s article of the story that the fan actually knocked off the helmet of the OSU player; however, this statement has yet to receive backing from UM officials.
After being identified, the fan was escorted out of the stadium. Currently, the University of Michigan police department is awaiting the prosecutor’s warrant for arrest of the individual on a criminal assault charge.
The same commenter that alleged the helmet was actually knocked off also mentioned that the incident might have been an “alcohol fueled decision.”
I would have much rather have heard about a fan facing criminal charges due to streaking the field in a celebratory victory lap – or maybe making a drunken attempt at hugging Harbaugh. Now, that would be a fan worthy of praise.
