After an incident where a fan is alleged to have illegally possessed and used a stun gun inside the Jets stadium during Sunday night’s game, the Colts announced a new NFL security policy today. This is the Colts’ statement: “At the direction of the NFL, fans attending this Sunday’s Colts vs. Browns game, and future NFL games, will be subject to an enhanced personal security screening prior to entering Lucas Oil Stadium.
“The screening will include physical pat-down (above the waist as well as below the knees) and inspection of all items. “The enhanced personal security screening is in addition to the process guests have typically experienced at NFL games since 2001. “In order to accommodate this security enhancement, guests are asked to arrive earlier than normal to avoid longer security lines at the checkpoints. Guests may refuse inspections; however, management reserves the right to refuse entry.”
