Kyle Adam Maraghy, 26, was charged with simple assault and taken to Mecklenburg Jail in Charlotte, North Carolina, where he is being held on $1,500 bond.
Maraghy is scheduled to appear in court Monday. Police took Maraghy to Mecklenburg County Jail.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police have arrested the suspect who allegedly assaulted a fan at a Panthers-Eagles football game Thursday night.
Maraghy then punched the seated man in the face four times.
Gene Serba, a friend of a 62-year-old man who was punched repeatedly in a disturbing video that has gone viral, told Channel 9 they repeatedly asked the suspected assailant, Kyle Maraghy, and a woman he was with to sit down.

He said the police had gathered information of Gurung's links with Maoists and other rebel groups in the North East. Sharma said, during the clashes, Gurung and his close associates fled to the neighbouring state of Sikkim.
"Words gradually got more and more escalated. there previously was a single mom and her son between us, they left halfway through the 3rd", according to the Instagram post. He said that a man wearing a Panthers jersey and a woman standing next to him were both standing up for the entire game.
Earlier Thursday, Panthers Executive Director of Risk Management Lance Emory confirmed that the club had "identified the perpetrator" and was working with local police. "The behavior exhibited by the perpetrator is unacceptable and will not be condoned at Bank of America Stadium".
Carrigan says the victim was upset about the fan in the jersey standing up throughout the game and obstructing his view. Carrigan claims that the fight broke out in section 541.
Channel 9 looked into Maraghy's past and found he was charged with assault in 2013 but those charges were dropped.
