The Chiefs 2005 season at Arrowhead ended Sunday as it began - with a victory and exactly three fan arrests.
Two fans were arrested for assault and one for disorderly conduct, Sgt. Rick Sticken, the KCPD's supervising sergeant at Arrowhead, told me. Three fans were also ejected by Chiefs security, he said.
The arrests do not include that of a Chiefs season-ticket holder who was taken into custody after someone he had allegedly punched out in a previous game spotted him, Sticken said.
From The Star today:
- The good news about having season tickets at Arrowhead Stadium is that you are guaranteed a seat.
- The bad news, at least for a 28-year-old Lee’s Summit man on Sunday, was that he was sitting near the same fan he allegedly had punched at a previous game.
- Story: Fans’ close encounter repeated – with arrest
Well, that's it. Fan arrest and ejection numbers at Arrowhead were certainlly lower than most - but not all - other teams. How much these numbers reflect fan behavior I leave to people who were actually at those games.
