A Green Bay Packers fan poured beer over Amon-Ra St. Brown of the Detroit Lions as he celebrated a touchdown for his team in Thursday night’s NFL game.
St. Brown spun away from Rasul Douglas, who slipped to the ground, to take a diving catch from Jared Goff for the first touchdown of the night at Lambeau Field.
He then ran and did a ‘Lambeau leap’ into the crowd to celebrate with some nearby Lions fans, but some members of the home crowd were far from impressed.
As St. Brown celebrated, one fan could be seen on camera reaching over and pouring his beer over the Lions man’s helmet.
The 23-year-old wide receiver didn’t appear to notice – if he did, he didn’t react in any way at all. But it’s another unedifying scene of fan conduct in the NFL, especially given the season has started with increased scrutiny over fan-fighting in stadiums.
