Maraghy is scheduled to appear in court Monday.

After being released from Mecklenburg County jail on Friday night, Maraghy did not comment when asked about the incident by Stephanie Tinoco of WSOC9.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrested Maraghy and charged him with simple assault after sucker-punching an older fan Thursday night in the upper deck of Bank of America stadium during the Panthers-Eagles game.

Police made an arrest Friday after disturbing video of a man being punched in the face during a Carolina Panthers game circulated online. Warren Carrigan, who filmed the footage and posted it on Instagram, wrote alongside: "Bro & his chicka were standing for the entire game".

Carrigan says the victim was upset about the fan in the jersey standing up throughout the game and obstructing his view.

The punches immediately bloodied the seated fan's face before others stepped in to stop Maraghy, who left before security arrived.

Warning: The video and post caption contains violence, blood and graphic language.

This is an attempt at collective bribery?" he said. "This is a clear break down of the countrys democracy", the statement said. So, from October 3 to December 24 when the election process concluded, it was 83 days, which is unreasonable.

The video shows Maraghy eventually turning around and punching the man sitting behind him in the face.

The victim is a 62 year-old man.

Terry reported Maraghy was charged with assault in 2013 before the allegations were dropped.

"We have reviewed video tape of the incident and have identified the perpetrator". "The Carolina Panthers are committed to a fan-friendly and family-friendly stadium experience".

"We are working with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department to pursue charges to the fullest extent of the law", Lance Emory, the Panthers' executive director of risk management, said in the statement.

The incident took place during the team's loss against the Philadelphia Eagles at North Carolina's Bank of America Stadium.
