Kyle Adam Maraghy: Full Story & Must-See Details On Viral Panthers Assault Suspect

NFL Investigating Horrific Panthers Fan Assault

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrested Maraghy and charged him with simple assault after sucker-punching an older fan Thursday night in the upper deck of Bank of America stadium during the Panthers-Eagles game.

Maraghy is scheduled to appear in court Monday.

Warren Carrigan, who shot the video, wrote in the caption that the older man complained to the couple for standing throughout the game - blocking his view.

According to Instagram user odubco of Greensboro, the man in the Panthers jersey and the woman with him were standing during the game, the fan behind him "took offense to the couple never sitting down and obstructing his view" and it escalated from there. Police tweeted that Maraghy was being taken to the Mecklenburg County jail.

Gene Serba, a friend of a 62-year-old man who was punched repeatedly in a disturbing video that has gone viral, told Channel 9 they repeatedly asked the suspected assailant, Kyle Maraghy, and a woman he was with to sit down.

The video shows the sucker-punch in action.

The 2014 US Open champion knocked out Spain's unseeded hopeful Albert Ramos , 6-3, 6-4. The Argentine recovered from a slow start to triumph 4-6, 6-1, 6-4.

Instead, the Panthers fan berated him with insults - and ultimately punched the other fan in the face, instantly opening a nasty gash that began to gush blood.

"We have reviewed video tape of the incident and have identified the perpetrator".

The incident took place during the team's loss against the Philadelphia Eagles at North Carolina's Bank of America Stadium.

The fans has been identified by the team as the Panthers and the National Football League continue to investigate the incident.

Twice since 2013, he has been arrested for assault, with one time being assault and battery, but details on the incidents were unavailable.

Carrigan said the aggressor was seated in section 541 row 24 seat 10.
