A selection of fans were removed from the stadium as a result. The crowd is now said to be under control.
The incident took place when the scoreline was 3-2. Tottenham scored three goals in the first 13 minutes to take the lead in Antonio Conte’s first game in charge.
However, the Dutch giants bounced back by scoring two goals before the half-time break – making it 3-2.
The second half got off to a turbulent start with Romero being sent off with 30 minutes left to play.
Vitesse then went down to 10-men after Danilho Doekhi was shown a second yellow card for a foul on Harry Kane.
Things then got worse for Vitesse when goalkeeper Markus Schubert was shown red. He raced out of the goal to confront Emerson Royal and ended up blocking the ball with his shoulder.
