Argument over NFL game escalates to violence

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The Minnesota Vikings-Green Bay Packers matchup is history. But, we're learning now about two football fans whose argument over the game turned violent.

A 30-year-old Minneapolis man has been arrested for stabbing another man after they quarreled about the game at the Leaning Tower of Pizza restaurant in Minneapolis Monday night.

Forty-one-year-old Leif Heide of Minneapolis was stabbed in the abdomen after the suspect followed him outside the restaurant and confronted him. Heide was taken to the Hennepin County Medical Center where he had surgery.

The suspect later called 911 and told dispatchers he had stabbed a man. Officers arrested him and recovered a knife from his pocket.
