A video which surfaced online appears to show Alabama football player Tony Brown visibly upset after the Crimson Tide’s Iron Bowl loss to Auburn and possibly striking a Tigers fan on the field.
The video surfaced thanks to AuburnSports.com on Vimeo.
In the video, you cannot see a punch land, but you do see Brown approach an Auburn fan before being pulled away. The fan’s head appears to jolt, before he snaps his head around and looks back in the direction of Brown.
The incident occurs at the 1:00 mark of the video below:

This is just one example of the dangers of fans being on the field immediately after a game, especially one as emotionally and highly-contested as the Iron Bowl.
Auburn was fined $250,000 by the SEC for fans rushing the field at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
People who see the video will have to determine for themselves whether a punch was thrown, but regardless it is not a good look for Brown who should not have approached the fan in any manner.
