Furious Eagles fans march on Philadelphia City Hall as they scale lampposts, chant ‘f*** the Chiefs’ and face down with cops before being sprayed with tear gas – following 38-35 loss to Kansas City
Philadelphia Eagles fans flooded streets almost immediately after the team’s crushing 38-35 defeat to the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday night, swarming City Hall and clashing with police that had been stationed throughout the city in fear of riots and unrest. Police had made multiple arrests as of 10:30pm, with disgruntled locals seen scaling lampposts, chanting ‘f*** the Chiefs’, and hurling glass bottles throughout the city’s downtown neighborhood. Footage circulating on social media also shows several residents lighting fireworks, with others egging on armed SWAT teams tasked with keeping the piece. Police were even in the firing line, with angry fans seen pushing a marked vehicle down a street. The loss is compounded by the fact the city’s baseball team, the Phillies, similarly crashed out of the World Series just a few months ago.
