ATLANTA (WSFA) - Two Alabama men have been arrested and charged following a fight at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta over the weekend. The incident was captured on video.
According to the Atlanta Police Department, Charles Walton Kraver, 55, and his namesake son, 25, were arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery that stemmed from a fight at the Alabama-FSU football game. Both are from Irvington, Alabama, located in Mobile County.
The fight happened at approximately 11 p.m. EST, according to the arresting officer.
The officer spoke with a victim who told him she'd gotten into an argument with the father about the football game. Her statement to police indicates the son then grabbed her around the neck and slammed her to the ground. The impact caused her to hit her head on the floor, she stated.
The woman told investigators that after she hit the floor, Kraver, Jr. started punching her in the face and chest with his fist.
The victim's brother-in-law told authorities that when he attempted to break up the fight and pull Kraver off the woman, the suspect's father began to choke him.
A third victim also attempted to break up the fight and reported to police that when he did so, both the father and son punched him in the face.
Stadium security broke up the fight and both Kravers were arrested and taken to the Fulton County Jail. Both were released on Monday, according to the jail's booking website.
The female victim was transported to Grady Hospital for treatment of a laceration to her head. The other two victims complained of pain to their ear or leg but refused medical treatment.
Video was later posted to Youtube that showed the fight inside the arena.
Video was also posted to Twitter by BarstoolFSU showing more of the incident outside the arena.
