Multiple people stabbed after Denver football game

DENVER (AP) - At least three people were stabbed in a parking at Sports Authority Stadium Field at Mile High after the Denver Broncos' game Thursday night.

Police spokesman Steve Warneke said three males were stabbed, and a fourth may have been stabbed, but that person left the scene.

Police have several people in custody and are not currently looking for other suspects. None had been formally charged as of just after midnight.

Police say that the incident was called in at 9:55 p.m.

Warneke described the scene as "very chaotic" and said police don't know what led up to the fight. He said police did not know whether the men had attended the game.

The Denver Post (http://bit.ly/18HGZb1) reports there were multiple eye-witnesses.

Warneke said one person was initially in critical condition, but all are conscious and talking

Stadium Management Company issued an email stating that it is working with authorities.

The Broncos lost 27-20 to the San Diego Chargers.

The stabbing Thursday is just one of several recent incidents involving football fans.

Earlier this month in Kansas City, Mo., a man died after an altercation in the Arrowhead Stadium parking lot during Kansas City's game against Denver.

In September in San Francisco, a teenage fan suffered a concussion and a broken arm and nose at Candlestick Park after police say he was attacked during the 49ers' game against Indianapolis.

Nobody knows if the guys were at the game or if they were fans of either team. It might not be football related... Don't jump to conclusions just yet people! I've been to many games in Denver, and it has been a pleasant and fun experience, win or lose. It might have been something like at Arrowhead, a robbery gone wrong... Maybe gang related, or some other of a million scenarios!

This is just a game, folks! I realize that emotions run high. I have been a San Diego Charger fan since the Chargers came to San Diego from Anaheim in 1961. No one has had more heartbreaks and disappointments than Charger fans but to take it to the level of violence is absolutely crazy. Goodness sakes.....get a life!

I personally have a bad attitude against the chargers because one of their fans verbally accosted my elderly mother in a subway while she was wearing her Bronco coat. Guess it made him feel good to pick on a defenseless old lady.

Finally, we are taking our sports seriously like other countries in the world. Now we need to have the fans flood the field, attack opponent team member and hey maybe maim or kill a few people. This will show the world we are serious about our sports. Perhaps the gladiators are causing to much adrenaline rushing to the alcohol and drug crazed fans. Just like the Roman Coliseums, more gore to appease the masses in their misery.

this is terrible. football is supposed to be fun to go watch and to be able to take your children and family. but with players like dez Bryant and many others that throw fits and act completely unsportsmanlike what do we expect? they should all be banned and then we shouldn't allow the players to do these things w/o consequences. This needs to be addressed and taken care of before yet another one of Americas great becomes too dangerous to attend.

I LOVE FOOTBALL. I quit going to professional games due to this kind of fan insanity.

Exactly why I watch it in the comfort of my own home. Warm, comfortable seats, friends and I can razz one another about each other's teams without it breaking out into fist-a-cuffs!

I have been to Arrowhead, O.Com, Candlestick, University of Phoenix Stadium, Mile High, and Qualcom. The safest places were O.Com, Qualcom, and University of Phoenix stadium. Raiders have the rep but isn't based on fact. No doubt they have their fair share of alcohol related fights but nothing serious. Opposing team fans are verbally harassed unmercifully but nothing physical. It is much worse across the bay at Candlestick because of gangs and hooligans physically attacking innocent fans. Arrowhead and Mile High were out of control. Arrowhead and Candlestick have set up sections for opposing team fans to try and reduce the violence. That doesn't help when you go to the restroom or to your car. Unfortunately I think the punishments need to be harsher by law enforcement and the NFL. How about a life time ban from NFL games for fighting? Alcohol definately needs to be banned because it is behing 99% of the fights.

can't get a gun use a knife , can't get a knife use a baseball bat , can't fnd a bat use a pipe - whatever they use , one thing will be most certain - the person commiting the crime with a weapon , is willing to commit bodily harm regardless of what they use - don't know why anyone would be so passionate ( or ignorant ) towards a football team that they'd take the chance of bein locked up for life over it but , I always say - ya wanna be a bad azz ? you'll go where bad azzez go then - its doesn't take cht to be one , it takes a lot mre NOT to be one !
