    At least one person was arrested following an incident in the parking lots prior to the NFC Championship Game on Sunday in Philadelphia where the Eagles are hosting the Vikings.

    Police confirmed with NBC10 an arrest was made around 3 p.m. following a "disturbance" outside Lincoln Financial Field. They did not reveal what led to the disturbance or the identity of the person taken into custody.

    NJ.com posted photos of a bloody man who they say was an Eagles fan and was fighting with police officers.

    "It is not clear at this point what started the fight, which took place around 3 p.m. EST in Lot M by the Eagles' home stadium. The brawl got so out of control that six horses were called to the scene in an attempt to control the crowd," per Eagles reporter Elliot Shorr-Park.

    Police on horses can be seen in the photos. Just last week a different Eagles fan was arrested for punching a horse and assaulting a cop outside of the Linc.

    Kickoff for the NFC Championship is set for 6:40 pm.

    The below video was also posted to YouTube of the aftermath of much of the mayhem.
