Police are investigating whether a fan struck Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray after the team’s win Sunday night.

Murray was high-fiving a group of fans in the front row after the Cardinals’ 29-23 overtime win over the Raiders when a fan seemingly slapped Murray, according to the NFL.

The video shows Murray going over to a group of excited fans. Murray then starts to walk away but the fans keep grabbing him until his teammates come over to help.

Murray appeared shocked in the video but was otherwise reportedly unharmed. He then tried to identify the fan who slapped him to inform security personnel, the NFL noted. (RELATED: Cowboys Fans Throw Trash At The Refs And Players After Losing To The 49ers)

“I was just told about it,” Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said Monday, speaking about the alleged slap, according to ESPN. “But I think that guy’s a lowlife, whoever did it, and I hope they arrest him, he gets fired and can never go to another game.”

The Cardinals’ win Sunday was the team’s first win since Murray’s new $230.5 million, five-year contract in July.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and the Arizona Cardinals did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller’s request for comment.
