Hollister suspects arrested for fan fight after 49ers game

These are the suspects arrested after the fight outside Levi's Stadium.

Two Hollister men were among four people arrested after a fight outside outside Levi’s Stadium on Monday involving fans of the 49ers and Minnesota Vikings, according to the Santa Clara Police Department.
The fight occurred outside Gate C near the parking lot at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, according to a police press release. A group of 49ers fans, including the two Hollister men arrested, are accused of assaulting a 35-year-old victim wearing a Vikings jersey who suffered non-life-threatening injuries, according to police.
Suspects arrested were Felix Chavira, 32, of Hollister; Juan Arias, 33, of Hollister; and Eric Martinez, 30, of San Jose. A 17-year-old female juvenile was also arrested.
The incident went viral online after the release of a video on social media.
According to Santa Clara police:
When police arrived, they learned all parties involved in the incident had left the scene. A video of the assault surfaced the next morning on social media, prompting detectives to identify the victims and suspects.
On Thursday in the late evening, detectives arrested Chavira, Arias and Martinez, and transported them to the Santa Clara County Jail. Police issued a criminal citation to the juvenile and released her to her parents, according to police.
Police stressed such behavior is unacceptable at the 49ers games.
“At Levi’s Stadium, we want folks to have an enjoyable time at every event including football games,” said Lt. Kurt Clarke with the Santa Clara Police Department. “Behavior like this will not be accepted or tolerated at Levi’s Stadium.”
