Minnesota man arrested after Packers-Vikings brawl


A Minnesota man was arrested after a fight involving about 20 to 30 people at a Green Bay-area bar after the Green Bay Packer-Minnesota Viking game Sunday, WCCO reports.

A 50-year-old man, unconscious and bleeding from the head, was taken from the Ashwaubenon, Wis., bar Sidelines to a Green Bay hospital and his condition was not immediately available, the station reports. A Green Bay man was also arrested on a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge, WCCO says.

Ashwaubenon Public Safety officials did not say whether the fight was directly related to the game, but police scanner chatter indicated officers were looking for a man with a purple sombrero, WTAQ reported.

The Packers won the game 23-14.
