Colquitt County Sheriff reminds Packer fans to stay safe

COLQUITT CO., GA (WALB) -

Colquitt County Sheriff's officials are urging fans to behave at tonight's homecoming football game after a deputy was assaulted last week.

Officers were escorting a rowdy teen out of last Friday's game, when investigators say another teen ran up and hit one of the deputies in the head.

"You are out there to enjoy the games. Enjoy the game, stay in the stands root for your team and just have a good time. And if there is some issues get an officer and say hey we got a problem," Lt. Randy Stephens.

That sheriff's deputy sustained minor injuries but is okay.

Deputies arrested the teenager who hit him.
