The Kansas City Chiefs won’t tolerate fighting at Arrowhead Stadium — not even among superheroes.

On Monday, the team banned a superfan, “Red Xtreme” (née Tim Oerman) for his involvement in a physical altercation during the team’s home loss to the Bills earlier this month.

According to The Kansas City Star, Oerman said on his Twitter page that the Chiefs revoked his season tickets and handed him a one-year ban from games and events at Arrowhead Stadium. The tweets have since been removed.

The fan said he was informed via a letter from the team that he violated the stadium’s Fan Code of Conduct.

“Your future presence in GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium and/or any Chiefs controlled parking lots or similar areas, as well as any Chiefs sponsored events is trespass and the Chiefs will involve law enforcement and seek prosecution to the fullest extent of the law,” the letter read.

During Kansas City’s Week 5 loss to Buffalo, Oerman came to blows with fellow Chiefs superfan “X-Factor,” whose real name is Ty Rowton. Nearby fans filmed the scuffle, which went viral on Twitter before the video was taken down.

The clip shows Rowton getting knocked out and tumbling down a set of stairs at Arrowhead Stadium. Other fan photos showed Rowton in a wheelchair after the fight.

It’s unclear if Rowton was reprimanded by the team.
