State police at Frackville said a Schuylkill County man is facing charges following an incident after watching a football game.

Troopers said Christopher Burke, 32, and Jon Koons, 46, both of Saint Clair, were watching a football game on television at 144 Arnot St., New Castle Township, on Sunday, Nov. 18.

About 11:50 p.m., after the game was over, an intoxicated Koons grabbed an intoxicated Burke and pushed him to the ground. As Koons and Burke were falling they reportedly fell into a stove in the kitchen and shattered the glass on the door. There were no injuries reported.

Troopers said Koons was cited for harassment.
