WASHINGTON — An altercation at FedEx Field Monday night did not result in serious injury, police say, despite a viral video indicating otherwise.

A Facebook user by the name of Mike Vaughn posted video of an altercation on the concourse level of FedEx Field, following Washington’s 19-16 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. A mix of Cowboys and Redskins jerseys can be seen in the video as security attempts to break up the fight. Moments later, a man wearing a Cowboys jersey is seen on the ground.

“This is a dangerous place to be a Cowboys fan,” the man holding the camera says. “This guy got stabbed. There’s a knife on the ground.”

Prince George’s County Police say they are aware a fight took place, but report no stabbing occurred. Two adults were arrested from the scene, police say, but no one sustained injuries requiring hospitalization.

Redskins spokesperson Tony Wyllie issued the follow statement to 106.7 The Fan:

“We are aware of an altercation that took place at FedEx Field following Monday’s game. We thank members of the Prince George’s County Police Department who responded promptly to break up the altercation and arrested both men involved. Neither sustained injuries that required hospitalization. We will continue to gather more information on the matter and ensure the safety of all fans at FedEx Field.”
