Lakers Fan Pepper Sprayed a Jazz Fan in Utah After Loss

Kobe Bryant flashed his coach an amazing death stare, and you’d think he was the angriest person in the world about the Los Angeles Lakers inexplicably falling to 1-4. Nope, a Laker fan in Utah last night was much angrier (and crazier.) Per the Salt Lake Tribune: “Salt Lake City police Detective Josh Ashdown said a pair of Utah Jazz fans were attending the basketball game Wednesday night when they started trash talking with a pair of Lakers fans. The discussion escalated and the Lakers fans challenged the Jazz fans to a fight, which they declined, Ashdown said. Security threw the two Lakers’ fans out of the game, but they apparently decided to stick around to continue the confrontation with the Jazz fans, he said. The Lakers’ fans spotted the Jazz fans standing on the corner of 100 South and 400 West and started trash talking again. At that point, one of the Lakers’ fans pulled out pepper spray fogger and let loose with it, police said. Ashdown said instead of a concentrated spray, the fogger expels a big mist of spray very much like a fire extinguisher. Police said they were searching for a Latino in his early 30s who was wearing a Lakers jersey. He’s about 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs about 150 pounds. The man has medium length brown hair and was in a Dodge Charger.”

    Do you see why some of us hate the Lakers and their fans? This is despicable.

    lmao that death stare was absolutely terrifying

  • elmaar

    at least the league can’t fine the fans!
    in your face, David

  • bike

    This is the kind of thing gives small Latino Laker fans who drive Dodge Chargers a bad name.

  • Redd

    Could pepper spray blind someone? If so then this is sad.

  • robb

    5’6 and 150 pounds? no wonder why he had to use that spray. What an idiot.

  • Max

    Lakeshow, behave yourself now.

  • roscoe

    why can’t ppl just respect each other? this is a display of human nature at its worst.

  • LakeShow

    Yup it’s “Lakers fans”. Not just sports fans in general.
    That’s like saying “You know this is why some of us hate Mexico.” When a drug cartel kills an American. You can’t really blame a franchise for the acts of a few people……… but do you man.

  • LakeShow

    About as often as a numbing shot will kill you.

  • LakeShow

    It was a tough loss. I still have no idea how or why I woke up in Salt Lake on a floating mattress with a Lakers vs Jazz ticket in my pocket.

  • Redd

    Thanks man, wasn’t sure.

  • Max

    Don’t you remember?
    You must stop drinking during the games man..

  • Iaretheone

    well that discription really narrows it down…good luck finding a needle in a hay stack

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Well, the US sponsors some drug cartels while pretending to fight others so not exactly an apt comparison! Plus Mexicans suffer the most from both drug cartels and the US-imposed “War on Drugs” so why would we blame Mexico?
    I’ll stop now. =)

  • MikeC.

    Mikan, Wilt, Kareem, Shaq, Pau and now Dwight. I can even throw in a Vlade and an Elden for backup if you need time know the real reason everyone hates the Lakers. Oh yeah, West, Elgin, Magic, Worthy, Kobe….Damon.

  • MikeC.

    Damn, not Damon. Stupid new phone doesn’t have my common swears in the onboard dictionary yet.

  • Ugh

    It can ban them from all events and arenas, though.

  • 1982

    Times have changed. Back in my day Latinos sprayed uzi’s. Or maybe that was just a movie I saw…

  • Ugh

    Kobe just looks like a 36 year old who’s playing 37 minutes a game on a sore foot – wiped out. That’s how I stare at anything after I play ball for three hours, too.

  • Mr. Nicewatch

    Clueless non-laker fan: LOL ALL Laker fans are pathetic.

  • charliewinning

    Yeah, please stop being a blunt, honest realist. It’s much easier to believe the bullshit we’re told.

  • Bigbeats23
