VIDEO: Man Who Sucker Punched Senior Citizen At NFL Game Now Behind Bars

Kyle Maraghy has a violent criminal history and has now been arrested for his assault.

Charlotte, North Carolina – A Panthers fan was captured on video sucker punching a 62-year-old at an NFL Thursday Night game (video below.)

That Panthers fan has since been arrested and is now in jail.

Along with his arrest, we've learned that the suspect has a violent criminal history.

Kyle Adam Maraghy was arrested after the assault at Bank of American Stadium.

TMZ reported that Maraghy had been arrested for assault at least two times since 2013.

According to CBS Sports, Warren Carrigan was the man who took the video.

Carrigan told CBS Sports the fight started because Maraghy and a woman he was with were standing the entire game and blocking the view of the victim and the people seated directly behind Maraghy.

Maraghy called the 62-year-old man a “geriatric fuck” and a "faggot" then hit the man several times in the face and drew blood.

Fans intervened and Maraghy and his girlfriend fled the scene by jumping over rows of chairs as fans booed them.

Carrigan said he shared the video on social media because he wanted justice “for the poor old guy who just wanted to watch a football game.”

Maraghy is 26 years old and was arrested for assault and was in jail, according to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

The NY Post reported that Maraghy was arrested Friday evening and charged with simple assault.

The Carolina Panthers released a statement Oct. 13 that they reviewed the video tape of the incident and identified the Maraghy.

“We are working with the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department to pursue charges to the fullest extent of the law. The Carolina Panthers are committed to a fan-friendly and family-friendly stadium experience,” the Panthers said.

“The behavior exhibited by the perpetrator is unacceptable and will not be condoned at Bank of America Stadium.”

TMZ reported the victim was treated by a medic at the scene. CBS Sports reported that Maraghy is being held on $1,500 bond.

White on white crime

We should institute public spankings! If you are caught "red handed," you should be publically spanked before any other punishment. How quick would the liberals lose their minds?

This has nothing to do with race. Violent, entitled assholes come in all shapes and sizes and colors.

I think race does have something to do with this. Multiple assault charges and not a mention of probation at all. Seems like he's being let off easy as to not ruin his future.

My husband is 62, works hard and works out every day. Hasn't slowed down a bit. He could have taken this punk out with one punch. I've seen him do it twice, once to his friends drunk brother in law who was breaking a restraining order, was told to leave 3 times, took the first punch and was 5 inches taller. And again when our neighbors schizophrenic son was locked out of his Mom's house for hitting his sister and was in our yard at 2 am causing the dogs to go crazy. A 30 year old former boxer who again hit first. My biker took him out with one punch. Not all 50 and 60 year olds are "geriatric".

Race does not have anything to do with what he was charged with. He was in jail, was banned from the stadium and his name, face and his crime are on a viral video. His life is shit, now.

Hey, I am 68 and run marathons. I would have kicked the shit out his punk ass.

This guy is a jerk, but the old man did nothing to diffuse the situation. He put his finger in the guy's face. I'd see that as a threat, especially if the young guy his acting like he wants to fight. Call security, let them deal with it.

And all you old guys saying you'd have kicked this guy's ass, no you wouldn't have. Don't let Bruce Willis and Liam Neeson movies let you start believing you could stand up to a guy a third your age and not get rocked.

When I was 20 and 200#s, my Judo coach was 60 and maybe 150. He could kick my ass w/o breaking a sweat... and anybody else in the room. Don't write off the old guys...
