Miami police officials are defending their own after officers are caught on video scuffling with a fan at last night's Miami Heat game.
Investigators say a cop approached Adrian Mato and asked him to calm down because he had been arguing with and swinging at other fans.
The 23-year-old refused to leave when officers tried to remove him from his seat.
The video shows punches being thrown, and the officers and the fan falling down several rows.
Detectives say the fan elbowed and kicked the officers.
Mato is charged with disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence and battery on a law enforcement officer.
