Two Westchester men are facing additional charges for allegedly beating a 55-year-old man during a Ravens game in Baltimore on Sunday, Oct. 2, according to the Baltimore Sun.
On Thursday, the Baltimore State's Attorney's Office, charged Scott Smith, 30, of Mount Vernon and Andrew Nappi, 31, of Eastchester, with the additional charges of conspiracy to commit assault and reckless endangerment, in addition to their original charges of first- and second-degree assault, said the Baltimore Sun.

The Raven's fan remains in a rehabilitation hospital and is recovering slowly, the Sun said.
Following the incident, Nappi told police they argued and that Bauer threw a bottle that hit Smith in the head. He said that's when he punched the man in the face and Smith shoved him to the ground, reported the Baltimore Sun.
