I would have had no choice but to crack his skull open if i was sitting their depressed while he's chanting "JETS JETS JETS" repeatedly, while scanning the crowd.....i'm also very immature for my age.

Except that you would have been outnumbered in your own stadium.

Here's a little police work for you. I smell set-up. evidence:

1. the person videorecording the incident is doing so for some time before the cops arrive which means

A. he was obviously bothered enough by the J-E-T-S chant to record the arrestee rather than watch the game.

B. he was aware that the police were coming to confront the unruly fan

2. Qualcomm has a text-to-tattle policy.

A. the police were alerted by someone about a fan inciting the crowd via text.

B. the police arrive in force with removal of the fan an obvious priority

C. surrounding fans (other than videographer) state the arrestee is innocent.

SO: videographer sends text indicating serious offense, then sits back and records the jackass while he gets arrested. seems as likely a scenario as any other.

DAMN - I just remembered. Sunday, January 17th was National Law Enforcement Harassment Day.

Please. EVERY day is National Law Enforcement Harassment Day. I've seen the PSAs. A cop bares his ass and says, "Kiss it or ticket."

No offense to most, but none of us were there and do not know what really happened. Quit jumping to conclusions that the cops just up and arrested this guy for the hell of it. It's quite insulting.

True, but usually in these video's the crowd is happy the idiot is being arrested. Just odd that San Diego fans where defending him. Makes me think he wasn't doing much. I agree with Mic, just shut up and go along nicely.

I don't know if you guys have seen this, but it gets me pretty angry.

San Diego cops can't just arrest somebody because they are yelling out "Jets, Jets, Jets" This gets me so pissed off. Even the guy who tries to defend the Jets fan gets kicked out. Disgusting.

At the 1.39 mark the guy says "I earn $50 thousand a year, your arresting the wrong person". Screw him, he was being a jerk and if they didn't arrest him he would have gotten beat up eventually.

Living in CA I can tell you one of the reasons why SD is a better place to live in than LA is because they never let the police force go PC on everybody. So I'm glad they hauled him off.

I can't blame Qualcomm for having extra security. They have Raiders fans in every year.

+Million

NY area fans don't know the problems the Raider fans cause, especially the LA Raider fans. When the Raiders were in LA the player's wives stopped going to the games. Not the wives of opposing players, the wives of Raider players.

Exactly... I think it is fair to assume he was talking smack to the Chargers fans around him... someone texted security about it and they removed him.

Just because on the spot people were defending him does not mean that someone in reach did not ask to have him removed.

I would tend to agree, and the kid is obviously stupid for resisting because nobody ever got left alone for resisting the police, lol. But on the other hand, while we don't know all the particulars there is 1) not one person actually visibly upset or bothered by this guy and 2) a few people giving the cops a hard time that the kid did nothing. Generally people don't stick their necks out for strangers. Even more so when it is a visiting fan making noise, and even more so still if the kid did do something worthy of being tossed. You see uninvolved people yelling at the cops, touching the cops, giving their personal info, and one guy even gets tossed himself for trying to stop it, and none of them looked like they were with the kid.

My guess is the kid looks a bit drunk and he is being asked to leave for public drunkenness. That is fair, but to me it looks like the cops aren't really expressing their reason for arresting him and generally a drunk fan should just be escorted out.

On a related note, my brother was completely abused by the police in Cincy last week. He had some of those redbull energy shots, like the 5 hour energy shots.. HE was standing by the bar in the stadium, pulled one out of his pocket, opened it up and drank it. HE was immediately tackled by a few police officers and brought to the ground. My brother was in shock, lol. They brought him down to some holding room and said they believed he was drinking alcohol he brought into the stadium. When my brother explained what it was he told them he had more in his pocket. They pulled one out and said they had to "go test it" and left him there for a little bit. They then came back and let him go. Now, I will admit he was visibly overerved, but he wasn't causing any problems, wasn't making any trouble, and wasnt walking around like a drunk fool. He was no more visibly overserved than anyone else. The only difference is he was a young guy wearing a jets jersey. At least he has the sense not to be an @sshole even when the cops are. In a lot of stadiums the visiting fan is going to be scrutinized, and a drunk visiting fan has little chance of making it through the game, its just the way it is.

I went to the Jets-Chargers Monday night game last year, took my 11 YO son. The security was unreal.....I have never seen so many yellow-jacketed security people at any sporting event I have attended. There were literally hundreds of people escorted out of Qualcomm that night.....most of them were wearing Jets gear. When the game got out of hand and all the Charger fans started woofing at us and other Jets fans in our section, we left early (which I never do). The video above does not surprise me one bit based on my experience there last year.

Yeah i was there and I took a fair amount of abuse. I had to stand up for a guy who was there with his family getting abuse from the crowd. I think they are so messed up from getting abused by raider fans that they think they can lash out at other fans to make themselves not feel like b#tches. Place is full of wanna be chulos talking smack. And not one guard or cop did a damn thing to get them off my or that family's back.

You brother's civil rights were violated. It is a bigger deal than people like to make it. People should not feel helpless and powerless when it comes to interactions with our supposed protectors. Force should be the last option when more often than not it is the first.

Someone needs to tell me what the cops are in hot water for?

...............since everyone was there and all. Oh wait...none of you were.

What do you all do for a living? I'd like to begin second guessing your work decisions and assuming you were all incorrect based upon knowledge I do not personally have. Thanks.

That would be a fair assumption for sure, and I will agree that the preponderance of the evidence would indicate that based upon the video. I'm just saying we don't know what caused the officers to choose to make the arrest and the fact that the video didn't start until after the arrest was being effected, makes it hard for me to assume anything. For all we know they were bring pricks, or for all we know they were merely escorting him out until he got frosty and resisted. We have no idea.

I don't know about you, but I don't usually pull out my phone and start recording until something actually starts to happen. The person recording it probably just started recording after the cops showed up after putting his/her phone away the first time.

Calm down Officer Joe Bolton and no I dont mean this disrespectfully at all. Its just a bunch of football fans reacting to a youtube video and voiceing opinions. Did the guy resist arrest if he did then he deserves everything he got. I noticed him wrestling with the police officers instead of cooperating. Was there alcohol involved who knows? I didnt see him or his wife/gf holdig a beer. My guess is all charges will be dropped and everything will be fine.
