Fan Runs on Pitch And Attacks Soccer Player [VIDEO]

It seems that these types of incidents are becoming more and more prevalent in the soccer world.  During a soccer match between Romanian teams Steaua Bucharest and Petrolul Ploiesti on Sunday a fan was able to sneak on the pitch and attack a player.   Steaua Bucharest took a 2-0 lead and a fan of the home team (Petrolul Ploiesti)  ran onto the pitch and was able to get behind Steaua Bucharest defender George Galamaz and sucker punch him in the head.  Galamaz’s teammates were able to stop the attacker before any more damage occured, and actually got in some good blows themselves on the intruder.

The fan was arrested, but it still doesn’t make anyone feel better about how this continues to happen in European soccer matches.
