PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – An intoxicated New England Patriots fan celebrating last weekend’s win over the Pittsburgh Steelers is now facing charges.
According to police, officers were called to the Port Authority’s Fallowfield T station around 10 p.m. Sunday for a report of a fight.
When they arrived, they learned a man in Patriots’ apparel had thrown a rock at the light rail vehicle, which broke a window and struck a female passenger.

One witness, who doesn’t want to be identified, said it was her friend who was hit.
“The person who that screaming with the Patriots’ [gear on] on the T, got off, [and] all of the sudden, we started hearing rocks thrown against the windows and that’s when my good friend was one of the ones who got hit,” she said.
The suspect has been identified as Sean Sullivan-Fullum, 24, of Pittsburgh.
Earlier in the night, police cited Sullivan-Fullum at the Allegheny Station for allegedly moving a metal barrier to jump the line. There, he was told to leave Port Authority property.
In the later incident, when he was arrested, witnesses said Sullivan-Fullum was yelling at Steelers fans on the trolley and swinging from the handrails. One witness said Sullivan-Fullum spit in his face when he tried to get him to sit down.
