It wasn't the only incident. Later, the cops had to come back to the section and carry out three guys in the lower portion of 108. I'm assuming being drunk was a reason (one guy could barely walk two cops had to help walk him up the steps). Outside of getting some beer splashed on me and the Mrs. we got out of FedEx.
No, sorry I didn't get photos/video of this. I was more concerned about not getting caught up in the thing and trying to move the Mrs. out of the way (her seat was closer to it than mine). But it was a big enough incident that DC Sports Bog mentioned it in his Best/Worst article. More details coming soon.......
Update: Somebody recorded it. (ah, You Tube how could we live without it).

Update 2: Not sure when I'm getting around to the game recap, so here's the story that started it all (this was from what a fellow STH that sits next to me told me from the one of the fighters [I believe the guy in the white #98 Orakpo jersey] wife). Apparently, a group of people came down from the upper bowl to the lower bowl to see if they could snag better seats that weren't being used. Either the real ticket holders came back, or somebody didn't care for people sneaking down. It led to words and right when McNabb threw the INT, the crowed roared and two blond women started fighting. That was broken up and that led to the two guys (#98 and Redskins jacket guy) fighting #26. Beer was thrown (I believe from #98) that hit me and other people in the crowd. As you can see on the video #26 is bleeding around his eye piercing after punches were thrown on both sides.
What was the saddest part of the situation was that after the fighters left, one of guy's wives (lady in the #98 burgundy jersey) was looking for her husband's wedding ring (not sure if it flew off his hand or what during the melee). She went row by row asking if people they would look around them for it and apologizing for the whole mess. I heard her say something about having one drink too many. I felt bad for her.
