Toronto police have issued trespassing charges after an altercation between fans and two Argonauts players.
Part of the incident was caught on video, and apparently shot following the Hamilton Tiger-Cats beating Toronto 27-19 to advance to this weekend’s Grey Cup.
It appeared to show Argos defensive back Chris Edwards taking a swing at a fan, and receiver Dejon Brissett giving him a shove before venue security intervene.
“The Toronto Argonauts, in conjunction with MLSE security, the CFL league office and local police, are investigating a post-game incident involving team personnel and visiting fans. The club will issue a statement once the investigation is complete and any outcomes are determined,” said a team spokesperson.

Toronto police say two individuals were charged with trespassing and removed from the facility. Because this is an going investigation, additional charges can be laid at a later date.
“At the end of the game, two men allegedly jumped a barricade and were attempting to fight with players,” said Const. Edward Parks in an email to the Star.
Looks like fans behaving badly isn’t just an American sports thing.
