In the video, it appears that Seattle fans threw several snowballs at the Jets players as they were walking through the tunnel. Ellis is then shown picking up a large chunk of snow and throwing it at a fan in the stands.
TMZ reported that the Seahawks fan, Robert Larson, claimed that he "suffered physical injury, humiliation, mental distress, pain and wage loss from the incident."
Larson also claimed that he had been waving a pro-Seahawks sign, making him a "perfect snowball target."
