Marcus Peters finished with five tackles, but may have wanted a sixth.
The Rams defensive back let a heckler get under his skin Sunday, during Los Angeles’ 30-23 loss to the Eagles. The 25-year-old couldn’t take it anymore and went into the stands to challenge the smack-talker.
“Where you from? Where you from, homie?” Peters said as he walked up the steps that separate field from stands. “Don’t talk that s–t now, n—a.”
Rams personnel pulled him away before the situation escalated, though Peters kept shouting at the fan as he was dragged away.
Curiously, the heckler told TMZ Sports he does not like the fact the footage has gone viral, as he’s a fan of Peters and doesn’t want this publicity to reflect on the four-year veteran.
Peters, a two-time Pro Bowler, has not commented about the altercation.
