Kyle Adam Maraghy was arrested Friday without incident and charged with simple assault, police said.

Maraghy was taken to Mecklenburg County jail, but was later released and did not answer any of Channel 9's questions.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police have arrested the suspect who allegedly assaulted a fan at a Panthers-Eagles football game Thursday night.

Maraghy was wanted after video went viral of him at Bank of America Stadium as Carolina Panthers fans were watching their team take on the Philadelphia Eagles.

Channel 9 reporter Tina Terry spoke to the person who shot the video, who told her that Maraghy was standing during much of the game.

He added, "That's what the 15 seconds didn't show", with regard to the video of the altercation posted on Instagram.

According to an Instagram user, odubco, Kyle and his girlfriend stood during the game and the victim, "took offense to the couple never sitting down and obstructing his view". Then sucker punches him right in the face'.

The victim, a 62-year-old man who has not been publicly identified, was treated for minor injuries in the stadium, police said.

Twice since 2013, he has been arrested for assault, with one time being assault and battery, but details on the incidents were unavailable.

Serba said he believed Maraghy and the woman were standing on goal to block his view because he was wearing Eagles gear.

The Panthers responded with a news release saying they "are committed to a fan-friendly and family-friendly stadium experience".

"We are working with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department to pursue charges to the fullest extent of the law", Lance Emory, the Panthers' executive director of risk management, said in the statement.
