Police made an arrest Friday after disturbing video of a man being punched in the face during a Carolina Panthers game circulated online.

Maraghy is scheduled to appear in court Monday.

Channel 9 reporter Tina Terry spoke to the person who shot the video, who told her that Maraghy was standing during much of the game.

A man has been arrested in connection with a disturbing video showing a Carolina Panthers fan punching another spectator during Thursday night's National Football League game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

26-year-old Kyle Maraghy can be seen sucker punching the 62-year-old man sitting behind him during the game in the upper deck seats of Bank of America stadium.

He added, "That's what the 15 seconds didn't show", with regard to the video of the altercation posted on Instagram.

Paddock's girlfriend, who was out of the country at the time of Sunday's shooting, said she had no idea he was planning an attack. Curbelo said there are other areas of possible bipartisan agreement over gun laws in the wake of the Las Vegas tragedy.

Shortly before 6 P.M. on Friday, CMPD sent out a tweet, confirming the arrest of Kyle Adam Maraghy in connection with Thursday night's assault. "We are reviewing the incident with the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department".

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

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

The Panthers have identified the man who threw the punches and are working with local police to bring charges, the team said in a statement.

NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said on a conference call Friday morning that the league was aware of the incident and in contact with Panthers security.

Maraghy has been arrested for assault twice since 2013, reports TMZ. Carrigan claims that the fight broke out in section 541.
