"Man In Purple Sombrero" Arrested After Massive Brawl Outside Vikings-Packers Game

Green Bay cops are doing that thing where they won't officially say whether a fight involving 20-30 people outside Lambeau Field, which saw two arrested and one man hospitalized, had anything to do with the football game. I think we can probably read between the lines, though.

It took place immediately after the game, won 23-14 by the Packers. It went down in a sports bar just across the parking lot from the stadium. One of those arrested was from Minnesota, the other from Green Bay. And then, this:

Officers charged a 40-year-old Lakeland, Minn., man with felony substantial battery after the 3:36 p.m. incident. They arrested the man after bystanders described him to police. Police radio broadcasts during the incident said authorities were seeking a man wearing a purple sombrero.

We would actually encourage all drunken assholes to never change out of their garish superfan gear. It makes it easier for the rest of us to avoid you.
