A difficult sports loss turned violent last night outside the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, as multiple sources confirm a 35-year old man was stabbed in the neck following his team's 28-24 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
According to WSB-TV, the victim got into a verbal altercation with two San Francisco supporters. Toward the end of it, someone in the latter group pulled out a knife.
Said a witness of the incident:
“One of the falcons Fans just kept talking, telling him, “You ain't going to come here and win and nothing,’ and he hit the man, and that's what happened. The man went into his pocket and cut him."
Police quickly surrounded the scene and used pepper spray to calm the combatants down.
The weapon was then recovered and the victim transported to Grady Hospital. He is listed in stable condition, but the attacker remains at large.
