Video Shows Man Getting Stabbed During Brawl At Celtics Game

After last night’s Celtics-Grizzlies game, reports emerged of a stabbing that took place in the balcony of the TD Garden arena in Boston.

The website Deadspin obtained video of the stabbing from an anonymous tipster who was able to film the incident..

Here’s his description of what went down. (via Deadspin)

So the Celtics game is winding down. In the section next to us, some typical pill bros are getting more and more rowdy. The guys start yelling at each other for a minute and I decide to film.

One dude gives the other the finger (oh no) and it looks like he flicks something at him, beer? This pissed off the other white trash dude.

While this is happening, the Celtics just went ahead with a minute or so left. The place is going wild, so no one really notices the escalation. Then the dude pulls out a knife. You can hear the knife in the video. At the same other dudes start fighting each other and even at one point a girl is punching someone in the head. People are tumbling down the stairs.

Towards the end of the video you can see the knife guy in the corner darting across sections to sneak away.

Celtics win

In the video you can clearly see the man in the white jersey pull out what looks to be a switchblade and proceed to stab the man in the black jersey in the neck before running away.

Luckily, the stabbing victim did not sustain any life-threatening injuries.

(Warning the video is mildly graphic)
