Video shows 49ers fans beating Vikings fan after Monday night game
Tuesday September 15th, 2015

A video apparently taken Monday night shows a group of San Francisco 49ers fans beating a Minnesota Vikings fan outside Levi’s Stadium.

In the video, two men in 49ers jerseys are seen kicking a man in a Vikings jersey while he lays on the ground. A third man in a black shirt is on top of the Vikings fan, punching him in the face.

The Vikings fan tries to get away, but the 49ers fans follow him, continuing to kick him. A security guard and other San Francisco fans eventually break up the fight and help the Vikings fan to his feet.

The video, which is quite violent and contains strong language, can be seen below.

Post 49er gameI'm seeing a lot of comments talking bad about the 49er fans without actually knowing what happened, so....Here's the full story:The Viking fan in the video and a 49er fan NOT in the video were talking smack to each other, getting into each others faces. A lot of fans from both sides were telling both people to stop and just walk to their cars. The 49er fan then walked away from the situation and that's when the Viking fan may have got a little cocky. The Viking fan turned around and addressed everyone behind him (mostly 49er fans). He said " what's up, any of you fuckers want some?!" At that point everyone went silent for 2 seconds then as the Viking fan was turning around to walk away, the 49er fan in the black (at the beginning of the video who threw the first punch) tackled him to the ground. That's where the video starts.Here's my quick opinion:Don't talk shit like that in enemy territory...he instigated the whole entire situation. Sure the 49er fans may have gone a little too far, but when you poke your chest out asking "who wants it" you're going to get it

In 2011, a 66-year-old Bay Area man was beaten outside Candlestick Park after a 49ers game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The man, Manuel Austin, lost three teeth, was concussed and needed stitches to close wounds inside his mouth. No criminal charges were filed.
