Parking lot brawl at the Cowboys stadium?
We don’t know the details, but a parking lot fight between fans and Cowboys fans happened Monday.
According to reports, a crowd of fans in the Cowboys parking lot was angered when the team’s “Rise to Power” singer-songwriter, Jason Aldean, performed a rendition of the song during the Cowboys’ season-opening home game against the Carolina Panthers.
Aldean then turned on a crowd member who was not in the building.
Police said the man suffered minor injuries.
A member of the Cowboys Twitter account told fans that Aldean had been suspended indefinitely, and that he was not returning to the stadium until the team had secured his release.
The Dallas Morning News reported that police were investigating the incident, but did not provide details about what led to the altercation.
“We were looking at the situation and if there was a problem with any member of our community,” said Dallas Police Capt. John Sheehan.
“It was a very, very violent incident.”
Dallas Police Department spokesperson Lt.
Jody Rader told ABC News that the incident occurred on the stadium’s south side, but declined to say what led up to the fight.
“The incident did occur at the north side,” Rader said.
“The police are still looking into that.”
The Cowboys released a statement Monday afternoon thanking Aldean for his support.
“While we are aware of the incident and the allegations, we will not comment on any individual situation,” the statement said.
“This is not our practice to comment on pending investigations.”
Aldea, who had been in Dallas since his 2009 release, had not been charged with any crime.
