Three people stabbed over comments regarding Steelers, Penguins

Jamie Squire

A Beaver County bar was the scene of a weekend brawl that left three people stabbed, according to CBS Radio.

An argument between patrons at a Beaver County bar resulted in the stabbings of three people Saturday, according to CBS Pittsburgh.

The subject of the fight allegedly was in regards to comments made from the alleged attackers in regards to the Penguins and Steelers.

The accused recently moved to the area from Maryland, possibly indicating their dislike of at least one of those two teams.

Michael Landeros, 35, and his nephew, Armando Encinas, 23, are in jail Monday, according to the radio station, and Encinas is facing multiple counts of aggravated assault and attempted homicide.

To put it mildly, it doesn't look good for either of them, and it's another sad example of people incapable of simply leaving well enough alone. According to the report, the police chief Jim Essek said the accused "were looking for trouble." Both men were armed with knives, and were disarmed and detained by patrons before police arrived.

Regardless of who roots for what team, recent escalations in fan violence is alarming, if anything short of pathetic. A man was killed as the result of a brawl between Dodgers and Giants fans in San Francisco, and as passionately devoted to a team a person is, it should never come anywhere near that. It also shouldn't be used as a lightning rod to spark fights, either.
