    The man at the game used a device that looked more like a mobile phone.

    A man used a stun gun in a fight with other fans at the Cowboys-Jets game Sunday night, the president and CEO of MetLife Stadium in New Jersey confirmed.

    The stun gun, which is illegal for police or consumers to use in New Jersey, was about the size of a mobile phone and was carried in the man's pocket.  When a fight broke out in the stands, the man started using the weapon.

    The website Deadspin posted a grainy phone video Monday of the fight which you can see here (profanity warning) and said the offender was a man in a Cowboys jersey.

    Lamping said the man -- who wasn't identified -- was arrested after the incident and that "no one was seriously hurt."  Being the stun guns are illegal in New Jersey, it's not clear what charges the fan may face.

    There was an increased security presence at the game on the 10-year anniversary of the terrorist attacks, and Lamping said normal procedures for pat downs were "in effect at all entry gates."  Good thing, huh?
