ATLANTA (FOX 5 Atlanta) - Loyalty for Atlanta United went too far and turned violent.
Authorities said an off-duty Atlanta police officer was leaving the Five Stripes match Wednesday night with a friend when a group of men started harassing his friend for wearing a shirt for the opposing team.
Words were exchanged.
Officials said the men threw a beer bottle at the officer, hitting him in the head, and then they hit the officer's friend in the face.
Police said they're now reviewing surveillance footage from the area.
