Football fan assaults Seattle police officer at the CLink

The Seattle Police Department has posted a harrowing account here of how an officer was knocked unconscious while trying to eject a fan from the Seahawks game Saturday.

The officer was responding to a fight in Section 130 and called for backup.  On the way out, the “suspect rammed the officer into a cement wall along the side of the tunnel,” and hit the officer in the head multiple times, police say witnesses told them. Fans restrained the suspect until other police arrived, and the man was jailed for investigation of assault.

The officer was treated by medics and taken to Harborview Medical Center.
