The 12th Man needs to pump the brakes.
A number of Seattle Seahawks fans gave up on Russell Wilson and Co. during Sunday’s NFC Championship Game, as they left CenturyLink Field in droves during the fourth quarter and were forced to watch the wild comeback win from afar. But one early-departer didn’t have an easy time leaving.
A fan told Seattle police a man threatened to stab him after he tried leaving early.
According to KOMO News, the incident occurred outside the stadium at 2:53 p.m., which is right around the time Wilson threw his fourth interception of the game and the Seahawks were trailing the Green Bay Packers 19-7. The fan was walking away from the stadium when the suspect approached him and asked him why he was leaving early, the police report states.
The “excited” and “very intoxicated” man then pulled out a knife and held it to the man’s stomach, threatening him to go back inside. The victim was able to get away and notify police officers, who then tracked down the suspect.
Officers reported the man “reeked of alcohol” and had slurred speech. After the man was read his rights, “he apologized numerous times and said words to the effect of, ‘That was a stupid thing I did?’ ”
