7 arrested, 14 ejected at Chiefs-Bengals

Rain-slicked parking lots at Arrowhead stadium - and some fan assaults inside the stadium - made for a busy day Sunday at the Chiefs-Bengals game (Bengals 23-10), Kansas City police said.
Seven fans were arrested, including one for assaulting a police officer, and 14 were ejected, said Sgt. Rick Sticken, police security supervisor at Arrowhead.
Also arrested was a man who tried to drive his truck up the steep grassy slope on the northwest side of the stadium, but instead slid back down, hitting another truck, which then slid into a third vehicle, Sticken said.
The driver tried to flee, but other fans stopped him, Sticken said. He was charged with fleeing the scene of an accident and careless and imprudent driving.
An officer arriving at the scene of a "large disturbance" was pushed, and a fan was arrested for simple assault, Sticken said.
"The mood of the people was really good. All in all, it was an extremely busy day for police out there," he said. Sticken encouraged fans to make walk-in reports if they had an accident at the stadium.
He said fans can also call him at the East Patrol Division 816-234-5530 about police, security or other  issues at Arrowhead.
