Well That Is One Way To Ingratiate Yourself To Your New City

Marcus Giles: Chargers Fan.

New Padres second baseman Marcus Giles was handcuffed, detained and escorted from Qualcomm Stadium during Sunday's Chargers playoff game after getting involved in a fight on the stadium's club level, according to police.

Giles, 28, was given the option of returning after being detained but chose to leave, said San Diego Police Lt. Dan Christman. Giles does not face charges for the incident.

Christman said Giles and a friend were involved in a fight with at least one other person, who slipped away before being caught.
Now I personally know someone (a Bolts season ticket holder) who witnessed the entire event. According to my friend, a Patriots fan was drunk and obnoxious and cheering his team on, and when the Pats scored their first touchdown, got all up in the face of those people around him. Which naturally prompted Giles to immediately punch him in the face.

I refuse to believe that a fan of a Boston sports team was drunk and obnoxious.
