The Carolina Panthers fan who brutally assaulted another fan during Carolina’s Thursday Night Football matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles has been arrested and charged with assault.

According to TMZ, 26-year-old Kyle Adam Maraghy has been charged with assault for attacking a 62-year-old man. There’s a video of the assault, so NSFW warning.

#dudebro & 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 #dudebro how they’re being jerks and how rude they are for not sitting. the #dudebro turns around and calls the victim a “geriatric f—k”, “fa***t”, 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.

The person who posted the Instagram said the assaulter called the victim “a “geriatric f—k”, “fa***t”, and “hick”. Furthermore, Maraghy has a criminal history of assault, as he’s been charged twice before since 2013. So, yeah, he’s not a great dude.

Hopefully, this scumbag goes to jail. Even if he was provoked, punching a 60+year-old man multiple times in the face is idiotic. Thankfully, someone captured it on camera and the fan will likely face some time in the sin bin.
