The yet-unidentified Steelers fan who put his hand on the throat of a pregnant Chargers fan may have seen his last National Football League game in Pittsburgh. A Steelers fan was pictured with his hand around a pregnant Charger fans neck.

Daniel Minshew told the website that he and his wife, who is 26-weeks pregnant, were "subjected to verbal and physical abuse the entire evening" when they traveled from San Diego to Pittsburgh's Heinz Field to see the Chargers play on December 2. One of the men, wearing a Steelers jersey, then grabbed the woman around her neck.

Minshew also said that there was "no security or presence of law enforcement was visible in the actual section".

"My wife and I attend several road games annually and I myself have been to approximately a dozen away games and have never experienced anything like we did Sunday night", Daniel Minshew, the unnamed woman's husband, said to the Pittsburgh Current.
