SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Police arrested four San Francisco 49er fans accused of beating a Minnesota Viking supporter in the stadium parking lot after the team's Monday Night Football opener.

The Santa Clara Police Department announced Friday that three adults and a juvenile were arrested after the incident was captured on video and posted to social media sites.

The police arrested Felix Chavira, Juan Arias, and Eric Martinez late Thursday night and all were booked into Santa Clara County jail. Police didn't release any more information. The 17-year-old girl was cited and released. It's unclear if the suspects retained lawyers.

A 35-year-old man wearing a Vikings jersey sustained non-life threatening injuries, police said.
