Note: flares and pepper spray don’t mix.

That fact was made crystal clear this weekend in Poland during Slask Wroclaw’s 1-0 victory over fellow top-tier side Zaglebie Lubin when a Lubin fan, armed with a flare, was sprayed by police to prevent him from climbing over a security gate at Wroclaw’s Municipal Stadium. 

According to Polish football reporter Christopher Lash, the fan fortunately managed to escape with minimal injuries.
