INGLEWOOD, Calif. (KABC)– A soccer game had just ended when a wrestling match broke out in the SoFi Stadium parking lot.
Witness video shows a fierce fight at SoFi Stadium after the Los Angeles Chargers hosted the Kansas City Chiefs at the Inglewood venue on Sunday.
At one point, one of the fighters physically picks up the other, and his body slams him over the side of a railing and drops him onto concrete steps far below.
The man who was dropped can be seen getting up carefully and then getting to his feet.
The person who shot the video told Eyewitness News it seemed like the altercation started with one fan bumping into another. Another person tried to intervene when a fight started – and that person was the one who was thrown over the railing.
It was not immediately clear if the incident affected fans of opposing teams.
The incident is another example of fan violence at major sporting venues in Los Angeles and across the country.
In some cases, the fighting has resulted in serious injuries, including paralysis and even death.
In February of this year, a 49ers fan was in a coma after being knocked to the ground during a brief fight outside of SoFi

Another fan told Eyewitness News about a goofball hit that sent him to the hospital during the January 2022 Rams Cardinals game.
Dodger Stadium has also had its share of fan violence. One of the most notorious was the caning of Giants fan Bryan Stow in 2011, an attack that left him with serious and permanent brain injuries.
Just last week, a couple was attacked in the parking lot of Dodger Stadium after an Elton John concert.
In 2019, a father of four was brutally injured in a brawl in the Dodger Stadium parking lot and left hospitalized with a fractured skull.
In 2013, a man wearing Dodgers gear was fatally stabbed after a Dodgers-Giants game in San Francisco. Prosecutors later dropped the charges when confronted with possible evidence that the two men arrested in connection with the death may have acted in self-defense.
