3 stabbed in fight after Broncos-Chargers game
DENVER — At least three people were stabbed in a parking lot at Sports Authority Stadium Field at Mile High after the Denver Broncos’ game Thursday night.

Police have several people in custody and are not looking for other suspects. None had been formally charged as of just after midnight.
Police say the incident was called in at 9:55 p.m.
Warneke described the scene as “very chaotic” and said police don’t know what led up to the fight. He said police did not know whether the men had attended the game.
The Denver Post reports there were multiple witnesses.

Stadium Management Co. issued an email stating that it is working with authorities.
The Broncos lost 27-20 to the San Diego Chargers.
The stabbing Thursday is just one of several recent incidents involving football fans.
