Report: Ex-Tennessee State Rep Jeremy Durham Kicked Out Of Neyland Stadium After Punching Florida Fan

A former member of the Tennessee House of Representatives was reportedly ejected from Neyland Stadium last weekend for punching a Florida fan.

According to a report from The Tennessean, ex-Tennessee state rep Jeremy Durham was escorted out of Neyland Stadium for hitting a Florida fan in the face. There is no official police report from the incident, but The Tennessean has some eyewitness details.

A Tennessee fan who saw what happened said Durham was sitting with his wife and state Sen. Brian Kelsey, a longtime friend of Durham. The Tennessee fan said a particularly boisterous Florida fan was yelling loudly, and at one point Durham responded to the yells. The Florida fan started yelling at Durham. Once the Florida fan yelled at Durham, the Tennessee fan said, Durham turned around and hit the man in the face.

"As he hit the guy's face, almost slapped at his face, he caused the guy's glasses to fly off his face. (The glasses) probably went 10 to 12 people down the aisle and one row in front," said the fan, who requested anonymity for fear of retaliation.

Durham had been expelled from the Tennessee House of Representatives earlier this month after being found to have sexually harassed 22 women.
