If You're Worried About Those Violent Fights at 49ers Games, Go to This Meeting

Posted By on Tue, Oct 7, 2014 at 8:12 AM

Yesterday, video footage of some 49ers fans beating the crap out of each other circulated the blogosphere, drawing attention, once again, to how badly behaved football fans have been as of late. 

Seeing that this isn't the first time police have had to break up a fistfight at the new Levi's Stadium, authorities thought now might be a good time for the community to get together and talk about all the football-related violence. 

NBC News reports that residents are invited to a community meeting this evening where Santa Clara police and representatives from San Francisco 49ers management and Valley Transportation Authority will talk about the most recent brawls. 

On Sunday, 22 people were arrested at Levi's Stadium with charges running the gamut — assault, battery on a police officer, and public drunkenness, the news station reports. That was the same day, Santa Clara Police arrested Dario Rebollero and Amador Rebollero on felony assault charges after the pair were caught on camera beating two men in the restroom. The video shows one man is knocked unconscious. The video has since been removed from YouTube for being too "shocking and disgusting." 

In any event, if you're a football fan who'd like to attend a game without the fear of witnessing this kind of behavior, head out to the community meeting tonight at 7 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Don Callejon School,  4176 Lick Mill Blvd in Santa Clara.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
