The video posted to Facebook just after 9 p.m. Friday shows Stewart going into the stands and confronting a heckler. The man and Stewart lock hands and argue with each other. Then the man falls back into his seat as a security guard intervenes.
According to media reports the fan was an off duty Tulsa County Sheriff’s Deputy. The Sheriff’s office is now conducting an investigation.
