The fan who dumped a beer on Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill after scoring a touchdown is now being investigated by police.
With just 3:03 left in the fourth quarter, Tyreek Hill made a 75-yard touchdown, running past the end zone and into an area filled with (ill-mannered) Patriots fans. One angry fan doused a beer on him and several others appeared to flip him off.
In case you missed the wild clip, you can watch it below:

And now the police want answers.
Foxboro police reportedly told TMZ that they’re actively investigating the matter. No name has been released, but an eagle-eyed viewer may have screen-grabbed a photo of his face from television (it’s not clear that this is him):

The Patriots also released a statement on the incident, claiming the fan is now banned from Gillette Stadium for life.

Not a great look for Pats fans everywhere. Philly fans would never harass the opposing team like that.
