Seattle Seahawks fans apparently do not take kindly to their own trying to ditch the team before the actual game is over. As I am sure some of you recall, last weekend the Packers had the NFC Championship game all wrapped up and as a result some Hawks’ fans decided to leave early. Well Seattle didn’t give up and wound up making one of the biggest comebacks in NFL playoff history. One fan was so upset that others left he decided to pull out a knife and do something about it.


The man said he was leaving the game about 2:53 p.m.—Seattle TV station KOMO estimates that’s about when Russell Wilson threw his fourth and final interception and the Seahawks were trailing 19-7. According to the police report, the man told cops he was outside the stadium when the would-be attacker asked him why he was leaving the game so early. The suspect appeared excited, talked about all the money that the ticket had cost, and told the man “he should go back inside the stadium,” the report said. Then the suspect brandished a knife, which he held to the man’s stomach.

The man backed away, tracked down police, and pointed out the suspect to officers. Police said they recovered a Stanley multitool with several bladed attachments from the suspect’s belt pouch. Officers said the suspect looked “very intoxicated,” smelling of alcohol and slurring his speech. After he was read his rights, “he apologized numerous times and said words to the effect of, ‘That was a stupid thing I did?’”
