Seau Attacked by a Fan in 4th Quarter of Win Sunday

From: Boston Globe

This was one tackle Junior Seau could have done without. Midway through the fourth quarter, the veteran Patriots linebacker was tackled by a male fan who brought Seau to the ground. Team spokesman Stacey James confirmed that the fan was removed from Gillette Stadium and arrested by the Foxborough police. The police refused to provide details of the arrest or an identity of the fan. “It was definitely a shock,” said Seau. “It was probably one of my most memorable moments in my 19-year career.” Seau said he initially thought the fan was a teammate having some fun during the Patriots’ 47-7 blowout victory.

“I thought it was one of my players that was enjoying the win. As I was laying on the ground I saw this guy in street clothes,” said Seau. “Obviously, it was not one of the players or any of the employees of the Patriots. Therefore, security came over and took care of him. I wish him a Merry Christmas.” It won’t be a Merry Christmas for the fan who tackled Seau or the person whose tickets he was using, as the team has revoked the ticket privileges related to the seat. The team could not confirm whether the account belonged to the alleged attacker, and James declined further comment.
