WATCH: Marcus Peters Throws Ref’s Flag into Stands

47


Marcus Peters wasn’t a fan of the referee’s call late in Sunday’s game against the New York Jets. On a 2-point conversion try following a Jets touchdown in the fourth quarter, a ref threw a flag on him for defensive pass interference.

Peters, not thrilled with the ref’s call, walked up to the flag, picked it up and launched it into the stands at Metlife Stadium. It was caught by a Jets fan who held it up in excitement as a trophy while celebrating with those around him. Watch a video of the sequence below:

Peters was also flagged for tossing the flag in the stands and thrown out of the game. But he re-emerged from the locker room to the sideline wearing shoes and motioning to fans in the stands.

Earlier this season, Peters was involved in an on-field scuffle which resulted in Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch getting ejected for pushing a ref.

Peters was the one who came in late and made contact with Raiders quarterback Derek Carr as he was moving to the ground, and Oakland’s offensive line took offense to it. They shoved Peters and a few other players, and Lynch ran in from the sideline.
