FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — The New England Patriots say they have banned from Gillette Stadium a fan who threw beer in the face of Kansas City Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill late in the Patriots’ 43-40 win.
After scoring on a 75-yard pass with just over three minutes to play in Sunday’s game Hill’s momentum carried him through the back of the end zone and into the padded wall.
Fans made obscene gestures and threw beer at him.
The Patriots said in a statement the person broke the team’s fan code of conduct and “will be sent a letter of disinvite to all future events at Gillette Stadium.”
