Fans belong in the stands, not on the field. Period.
According to CBC, police say the man was in his 20s and was intoxicated during the incident. He was not charged criminally, but was issued a $115 fine for trespassing and banned from B.C. Place for one year.
The guy who got destroyed retained a lawyer who specializes in personal injury cases after he claims he suffered a ‘mild brain injury’ after being bamboozled by Lions defensive back Marcell Young.
In a release, Preszler Law Firm says “our client suffered serious injuries, including a mild traumatic brain injury, as a result of being struck violently by B.C. Lions player Marcell Young.”
It's unclear if the guy has a case or not. When you purchase a ticket, you are agreeing to a waiver that says the league, stadium, and team are not held responsible for any personal injury. But this is Canada, and the rules may be different. The grey area is the act of the player intentionally interacting with the streaker.i
Do yourself a favor, and stay in the stands.
