MILWAUKEE — NFL officials are investigating a confrontation between Green Bay Packers safety Nick Collins and a fan after Monday night's loss to the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field.
Spokesman Greg Aiello tells The Associated Press the league is "in the process of reviewing all the facts."
Milwaukee's WITI-TV aired video footage in which Collins is seen yelling at a fan as he left the field. Collins then appears to throw his mouthpiece into the stands. According to the station's report, Collins said the fan spit on him and used a racial slur. WITI says Collins apologized for "losing his cool."
Collins had a rough game in some ways. With the game tied at 17-17, Collins picked off Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler but the play was nullified by a penalty. And on an earlier drive, Collins got called for a late hit on Matt Forte after a 15-yard reception.
