RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — North Carolina State University police are looking for a group of fans caught on video throwing objects at referees following the football team’s loss to Clemson.

University police posted on Facebook Monday morning that they’re looking for information regarding the incident that occurred on Nov. 4 following Clemson’s win at Carter-Finley Stadium.


The video shows fans throwing objects as the referees exit the field and head down the tunnel to the locker rooms.

The person who posted the video on YouTube also claimed that fans may have spit on the referees as well.

CBS North Carolina spoke to some students who said they don’t support what the fans did.

“Those are just a few guys, probably drunk, not thinking what they were doing in the moment and I do not condone what they did,” said Mark Gilbert.

“It’s not something State stands for…I know Wolfpack nation is better than that,” said another student, Andrew Grant.

If you have any information on the identities of those involved in the incident, call N.C. State University police at 919-515-3000.
