Assault on Officer during AFC Championship

During the NFL's AFC Championship game on Jan. 24, 2021, fans complained that a man was not following the Arrowhead fans’ code of conduct or the mandates of the Kansas City Missouri Health Department. They asked for private security to address the matter. The man was not receptive and refused to comply with Arrowhead security three different times. Security then asked him to leave. He refused to leave. At that point they requested law enforcement assistance in ejecting him from the stadium. Officers advised the man that if he did not leave, he would be arrested for trespassing. He still refused to comply, at which point officers told him he was under arrest. The man then punched a police officer (at about 4:44) and put him in a headlock. Other officers then came to the scene and were able to get the man into custody without further incident. He was arrested and booked at the Jackson County Jail. Missouri Sunshine Law prohibits the release of a suspect’s name who has not yet been charged. The case has been referred to the Jackson County Prosecutor.
