Patriots Announce Fan Who Threw Beer on Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill Gets Lifetime Suspension From Stadium

The Patriots have announced a lifetime ban on a fan who threw beer on Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill shortly after Hill scored a 75-yard touchdown at Gillette Stadium according to Herbie Teope of NFL.com.
The Patriots swiftly identified the fan on video and sent out a memo Monday morning saying they had sent the perpetrator a letter of “disinvite” to all future events at the stadium. They also advised that the matter has been turned over to local law enforcement officials for further review.

Moments before the incident, Hill was at top speed as he crossed the goal line. His momentum carried him through the end zone to the fence that separates the fans from the playing field, where he came to a stop after using both hands to brace himself. Once there, replay showed other fans throwing up the middle finger in Hill’s face before a spectator to the wide receiver’s right side threw beer from a cup. To his credit, Hill did not retaliate despite the unruly greeting at the barrier.

The Patriots came back to defeat the Chiefs 43-40 in an instant classic that firmly established the Chiefs and the Pats as the top two teams in the AFC. If there is a rematch in New England in the playoffs, however, we know of one Patriots fan who will definitely not be in attendance.
