Seahawks defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson tried to climb into the stands after a fan threw a drink toward him as he was leaving the field after being ejected. Security pulled back Jefferson and steered him toward the tunnel as other fans tossed food and garbage in his direction.
“I’m not going to let somebody disrespect me, throw a beer on me,” Jefferson said, via Brady Henderson of ESPN. “Just because I’m playing football, I’m still a human being. I’m still a man.”
Watch: This is wild.
