A Former Boy Band Member Got Into a Fight at an NFL Game (VIDEO)

It’s hard to tell exactly what’s happening in the video above, but the people over at TMZ (those bastions of truth and journalistic integrity) say that the footage is of a former boy band star getting into a brawl at an NFL game — and getting kicked out of the stadium.

The boy band star in question is Nick Lachey, of 98 Degrees fame — and getting-married-to-Jessica Simpson-back-when-she-was-super-hot-and-super-stupid-and-starring-on-a-reality-show-with-her fame.

Allegedly, Lachey and his buddies were at the San Diego Chargers game over the weekend, watching their Cincinnati Bengals get a win over the home team. Lachey’s posse was reportedly trash-talking a Chargers fan because he was wearing the jersey of a player who isn’t on the team anymore. (For those wondering, the player in question is Igor Olshansky, a mediocre defensive lineman for the Chargers between 2004 and 2009 — and a bizarre name to have on a jersey.)

That fan’s wife then allegedly made a remark about how the player lasted longer with the Chargers than Lachey’s boy band did on the charts. This didn’t go over well with Lachey, apparently, and a minor brawl broke out.

I guess it’s probably not a surprise to find out that former boy band members are a bit sensitive about their past. Frankly, I’m stunned that Lachey has the balls to go out in public, let alone to an NFL game to cheer on the road team in a hostile environment.

As you can see in the video, security was on the scene pretty quickly and things didn’t get too out of hand — especially compared to some of the crazy fights that happen in NFL stadiums every weekend.

After the game, Lachey proudly tweeted about the incident:
