Sad Michigan Fan Gets Maced by Beaver Stadium Police

This Getty photo made its rounds on the internet yesterday, but it’s worth showing in case you missed it or if you just want to look at it over and over and over again like myself.

If you can’t tell, what we have here is a very sad Michigan fan getting maced and escorted out by police at Beaver Stadium during the game on Saturday.

Deadspin has an explanation from one of its readers:

I was sitting in the section next to this guy. He was standing for every play with his buddy and became confrontational with those around him. The people behind we’re getting pissed and some lady actually had enough and hit him. Mid way through the 2nd after Michigan had scored he started taunting everyone and it looked like he was about to start a fight in the stands. Security came up and escorted him down to the front when he grabbed the railing and refused to leave. He ended up taking some swings at the state police who were arresting which is why he got pepper sprayed.

My only regret is not getting it on video for Tuesday night fights.

If there’s anything worse than a Michigan fan, it’s an obnoxious Michigan fan (but I repeat myself).
