While Murray is not specifically named as the one who filed the complaint, video on Twitter shows the Cardinals quarterback being smacked in the face while celebrating with fans following cornerback Byron Murphy’s scoop and score touchdown in overtime to win the game.

As Murray ran over to celebrate with Cardinals fans at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, a hand comes flying out and smacks Murray in the face.

Murray clearly seems upset by it and appears to go back toward the fan to shove him, although the video ends before seeing what happened next.

The suspect was not immediately identified and the investigation is ongoing.
