A teenage boy says that a football steward”man handled” him because he filmed out Chelsea’s ground, leaving him traumatised.
He said he’d his bag confiscated, with authorities saying there is”no point” in reporting the episode.
Now a spokesman for Chelsea said:”We know of the complaint and are looking to it”
Max said he wanted an apology from Chelsea.
Forest buff Max, from Staffordshire, was still attending the game along with his 18-year-old brother Alex and a friend, and has been filming outside the ground for his award-winning YouTube station .
He said he was dragged”by the scruff of the throat” by the”very competitive” steward and carried to a security room in the scene.
Max said:”It only really upset mepersonally, and then I asked him the question,’Do you like doing so for pleasure?’ , and he replied,’Yes I do’, and which has been simply incredible.
“I have gone around so many different grounds and I have never had a problem filming”
Max stated a safety officer resisted his bag and also recording equipment before letting the three fans in to the game.
Once they tried to report it to authorities an officer told me was”no point” as they’d miss the game.
The Hayes family said that they were considering building an official complaint to the Metropolitan Police on the episode.
Max was endorsed by other fans and broadcasters on social networking, for example BBC Radio 5 live presenter Colin Murray.
The Metropolitan Police said stewards”have a significant function in arena security”, but any action”must be appropriate and proportionate”.
The Chelsea Supporters’ Trust said in a statement:”We would like Max to learn Chelsea fans have become disappointed to read his accounts of exactly what happened and want to provide real apologies to him with respect to each the decent and fairminded followers of our team “
The game ended in a 2-0 victory for Chelsea.
