    Three San Francisco 49er fans were charged with assaulting a man wearing Minnesota Vikings gear after the season's opening football game at Levi's Stadium.

    The three are accused of leaving the victim with a concussion after the alleged assault in the stadium parking lot on Sept. 14. The incident was captured on video and posted to social media sites. Detectives used the video to arrest the three 49er fans.

    The San Francisco Chronicle reported Tuesday the assault allegedly occurred after an exchange of heated sports banter.

    Thirty-year-old Eric Martinez, 33-year-old Juan Arias and 32-year-old Felix Chavira Sr. were each charged with assault Tuesday.

    It's unclear if they are represented by attorneys.
