Polish soccer fan set on fire by guard

- April 28th, 2014


Things got a little, uh, heated at a soccer game between Slask Wroclaw and Zaglebie Lubin in Poland over the weekend.

One supporter for Polish club Zaglebie Lubin lit a flare, and was chanting on a metal ledge when a security guard walked up to the fan and let him have it with some pepper spray.

And, as you know, as everyone knows, pepper spray is flammable.

But the cop, who won’t be prosecuted (the fan was doing something illegal), apparently didn’t know.

Then again, it’s Eastern Europe and soccer hooliganism. So, who knows.

The fan was briefly set ablaze before he fell off a ledge and ran to get medical attention.

Note to all flare-bearing soccer supporters: If it’s lit, avoid the dude with pepper spray.

    More to the point, what the hell are people with flares being allowed to come into a packed stadium with them? Is there no door security or security standards at events in Poland?
