Vikings Fan Accused Of Assault After Game
Fan-on-Fan violence at Vikings game
In an uncommon case of fan-on-fan violence, an Edina man appeared in court Thursday on charges that he punched and kicked another Vikings fan after a Tampa Bay Buccaneers game at the Metrodome.
Jeffrey W. Lupient, 22, was charged with third-degree felony assault for injuries allegedly inflicted on John Robinson, 55, of Roseville. Robinson and his girlfriend sat in front of Lupient at the Tampa Bay game. Robinson complained to a security guard that Lupient's date was spilling beer on Robinson and others. Minneapolis and Hennepin County prosecutors said they don't recall any fan-on-fan assault cases at Metrodome sports events.
