Six fans were arrested during the Pittsburgh Steelers' 18-16 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday at Paul Brown Stadium.

Rebecca Butts of reported on the unfortunate events that took place in the stands, which allegedly included punches being thrown and even a man urinating on someone.   

Jared McCarty, 19, was accused of underage drinking, theft, falsification and assault. McCarty argued with a woman prior to entering the stadium and stole her hat, according to police—and later allegedly punched her in the head.

Phillip Ross, 29, is facing an assault charge following his arrest at Paul Brown Stadium after being accused of head-butting a man in the face, per Butts.

Police also said David Grillo, 25, is accused of assault after he threw a beer at a fan's face during a game, resulting in lacerations.

Andrew Robles, 28, allegedly punched a woman in the face after eluding police officers, according to what police told Butts. He had been ejected from the game beforehand for an undisclosed reason.

A third woman was allegedly punched in the face by a Steelers fan named Tyler Matthys as he left the stadium at approximately 10 p.m. He has been accused of assault as well.

As for the urination incident that brought about disorderly conduct and assault charges, Martin Cooke, 33, was the alleged culprit. Per court documents, Cooke allegedly peed on the man in front of him, was accused of fighting with him and punched him in the face. Cooke will appear in court Monday, according to Butts.
