“You threatened me,” the fan can be heard saying to the GM.

The Athletic reported further details.

“The fan had been pestering Weaver in the build-up to what was captured on the video, according to sources briefed on the exchange. Weaver ignored the fan’s first pass and then, on the second one, said something along the lines of, “I don’t come to your work and harass you,” the sources said. The moment captured on video showed the fan’s third time provoking Weaver,” The Athletic reported. 

The GM in his fourth season with Detroit, declined to comment Sunday, according to ESPN.

A season-ticket holder from Detroit, Jeffrey Calloway, was sitting near Weaver when the fan heckled him multiple times and recounted his version of events to ESPN.  

“The guy that was in the incident, with the Red Wings stuff on, came over and was pointing at the scoreboard earlier in the game,” Calloway said in a telephone interview Sunday. “Troy Weaver just shrugged his shoulders and said, ‘OK,’ and the guy went back to his seat.
