An Overland Park man faces several charges after an altercation at Arrowhead Stadium Sunday during which he allegedly kicked a police officer in the groin.

Trenton J. Karlin, 28, is cited in Kansas City Municipal Court with assault, resisting arrest and making offensive contact. A video posted on Youtube shows officers attempting to arrest a man during the Chiefs game against the Dallas Cowboys.

According to police reports, officers encountered Karlin while responding to reports of a disturbance in which beer was dumped on several fans.

The man refused to cooperate with officers when they tried to escort him away. Eventually, he was taken to the ground and and officers used a Taser on him. After he appeared to calm down and was being led away, he allegedly kicked one of the officers in the groin, according to the reports.

The officer who was kicked, and another who suffered several lacerations on his head, were treated at the scene by stadium medical staff. Karlin had a scratch on his face, but declined medical treatment.
