3 arrested at Atlanta United soccer game

Three men were arrested after they allegedly destroyed metal bleachers at Bobby Dodd Stadium during Saturday’s Atlanta United soccer game, according to Georgia Tech police.

And it is not the first time one of the suspects has been accused of raucous behavior at a professional soccer game.

Jared A. Ambrose, 27, of Clermont, Fla., and three members of Orlando City Soccer fan clubs were arrested after smoke bombs were set off at a July 2014 Tampa Bay Rowdies game, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

The clubs were suspended and Ambrose and the others were banned from Orlando City games pending the outcome of their court cases. Prosecutors ultimately decided not to file charges against the fans.
