The Carolina Panthers have identified the man who brutally beat an older man in the stands Thursday night against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Panthers released a statement Friday afternoon, and said they are working with the local police after identifying the attacker.

Here’s the video for those of you haven’t already seen it, but be warned because it’s very disturbing.

dude bro & his chicka were standing for the entire game. words gradually got more and more escalated. there previously was a single mom and her son between us, they left halfway through the 3rd. after that, the lid was off. the dude took offense to the couple never sitting down and obstructing his view. the victim telling the dude bro how they’re being jerks and how rude they are for not sitting. the dude bro turns around and calls the victim a “geriatric fuck”, “faggot”, and “hick”. then sucker punches him right in the face. i don’t know if he got away or left in handcuffs, but i hope it’s the latter. edit: to clarify further, both the puncher and punchee were wearing Panthers attire. The assailant was seated in section 541, row 24, seat 10.

I am so happy with this news. I hope the police and the justice system absolutely wreck this guy. Hit him with every possible violation of the law they can find. Aggravated assault, fleeing a crime scene and public intoxication are three I just rattled off the top of my head.

This guy could use some serious time in the state penitentiary if he’s convicted. Absolutely no excuse for his actions, and it’s time for him to pay the price. Hating this guy might be the most unifying thing we have right now in America, and I’m all about him.

Smack the gavel, lay down a sentence and haul this bum off to prison.
