Chiefs fans, if you see a 6-foot, 270-pound, face-painted Raiders fan this year, run. This man is a destroyer.
The Chiefs have settled two lawsuits this year with local men who claim that a Raiders fan kicked their asses in the parking lot during a game in November 2005, according to The Daily Record in Kansas City.
The Daily Record reported in April that the Chiefs had settled a lawsuit with Terral Cline ,
of Lenexa, who claimed a Raiders fan broke his nose and knocked him
out. He blamed inadequate security at Arrowhead. Here's where the case gets murky for the Chiefs, via The Daily Record:
The then-29-year-old man, weighing 270 pounds and standing more than 6The Raiders
feet tall, was asked by police to stop drinking and calm down or risk
being thrown out of the game, according to a police incident card.
When police saw the man, who was decked out in black and silver
Raiders attire, grab a margarita from a friend and show it off to police
from across the stadium, officers handcuffed him and began to escort
him off the premises. They removed the handcuffs at the parking lot,
where one of his friends pledged to take care of him, according to the
transcript of a police officer's deposition.
fans friends apparently couldn't keep him under wraps. Cline blamed the
Chiefs for not making sure the booted Raiders fan had left the
property, leaving him in the parking
lot to put a whooping on Cline and his friend Charles Young, who also sued. Young claimed the Raiders fan beat him up, leaving him with shoulder and
facial injuries after getting smacked in the head and falling to the
Young's lawsuit settled shortly before the case was to go to trial on July 12, The Daily Record reported yesterday. Terms of the settlements weren't disclosed and the attorneys aren't talking.
The Chiefs weren't about to admit anything, claiming Cline's injuries
were partly his fault because he was drinking and arguing with Raiders
Apparently, fights aren't uncommon in
Arrowhead's parking lot. Cline's
lawsuit cited police reports showing 29 other assaults had
occurred in the lot in the five years before he was laid out. The Chiefs
reportedly didn't see a problem because the majority of the fights were
domestic violence incidents that didn't take place in the parking lot. So that makes it better?
