EAST RUTHERFORD - A man was arrested after allegedly using an illegal Taser in a fight with other fans during the Dallas Cowboys-New York Jets game Sunday night, state police said.

Leroy McKelvey, 59, of Moncks Corner, S.C., was charged with three counts of aggravated assault and two weapons counts.

MetLife Stadium CEO Mark Lamping said no one was seriously hurt in the incident.

There was an increased security presence at the game on the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, and Lamping said normal procedures for pat downs were "in effect at all entry gates."
