EAST RUTHERFORD -- When the Dallas Cowboys come to town to play the Giants, the State Police know they had better have extra sets of handcuffs ready. And when the Jets and New England Patriots go at it at MetLife Stadium, so do the fans.

An examination of documents obtained by NJ.com revealed there were 22 arrests before, during and after the Jets-Patriots game on Oct. 20, while the Giants-Cowboys game on Nov. 24 racked up the most arrests of any game last season: 25.

 

"We have enough troopers at each game," New Jersey state trooper Alina Spies told NJ.com. "There's nothing additional we'd do in terms of staffing for (a rivalry game), unless we get additional intelligence. In that case, we'd adjust accordingly."

New York Jets fan and Long Island bartender Kurt Paschke punched a female New England Patriots supporter, a blow that went viral on the Internet after the October incident at MetLife Stadium.

Paschke along with three Patriots fans -- including the woman Paschke punched, Jaclyn Nugent of Boston -- were eventually arrested on assault and disorderly conduct charges.

New Jersey State Police records obtained by NJ.com of each arrest during NFL games at the Meadowlands from the preseason through the Super Bowl showed a spike during such rivalry games.

 

Counting the Jets-Giants preseason game (10 arrests) and the Super Bowl (14 arrests), there were 217 arrests at MetLife Stadium during the 2013-14 season. There were 99 arrests on Jets game days and 94 on Giants game days, excluding the preseason game between the two teams that call the Meadowlands home.
