    Portland Thunder Player Throws Helmet, Hits Child in Philly Crowd
    The Portland Thunder player could be seen throwing his helmet into the stands.

    A young Arena Football League fan was hurt at the Wells Fargo Center Saturday night when a Portland Thunder player, upset over his ejection from the game, threw his helmet into the stands.

    Quincy Butler -- a defensive back wearing #16 for the Thunder -- was penalized at some point during his team's loss to the Philadelphia Soul and sent his helmet flying into the crowd as he left the field.

    A Soul spokesman confirmed a spectator was hit and said the League will be reviewing game footage to determine if the player will be disciplined.
