The Carolina Panthers’ fan who was captured on cellphone video, sucker punching another fan in the stands during the Philadelphia Eagles game in October will have to spend a few weekends behind bars.
The cellphone video, which was posted on Instagram, shows Maraghy repeatedly punching a 62-year-old man who was sitting behind him, eventually drawing blood.
A friend of the victim said that they repeatedly asked Maraghy and a woman he was with to sit down during the game.
Maraghy agreed to spend five weekends in jail. He also will have to take anger management classes, obtain a substance abuse assessment and comply with treatment, and he will be on probation for 18 months.
