Video Shows Kyler Murray Being Beaten By A Fan As Police Investigate


Las Vegas police said Monday they were investigating allegations that a fan in the stands punched Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray during the celebration of Arizona’s 29-23 victory over the Raiders. (Watch the video below.)

Murray gave front-row spectators a high-five at Allegiant Stadium after Byron Murphy Jr.’s game-ending fumble return on Sunday when a man appeared to reach out and punch Murray in the face with an open hand.

Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said Monday he had not seen the video of the alleged altercation.

“I was just told,” Kingsbury said. “But I think that guy is a fool, whoever did it, and I hope they arrest him, he gets fired and can never go to another game.”

Officer Larry Hadfield, a Las Vegas police spokesman, confirmed that a battery complaint had been filed at the stadium around 6:30 p.m. The report was not immediately available.

Hadfield did not name Murray as the reporter, but confirmed the allegation was that “a spectator at the stadium punched a professional footballer”.

Hadfield said a suspect was not immediately identified and an investigation was underway.

Cardinals spokesman Mark Dalton referred all questions about the incident to the Las Vegas Police Department.

The win was Arizona’s first since Murray agreed to a $230.5 million five-year contract extension. He was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 draft after winning the Heisman Trophy in Oklahoma in 2018.
