PHILADELPHIA (CBS/AP) — Philadelphia 76ers forward Mike Scott was involved in a fight with Eagles fans while tailgating outside the stadium after he wore a Washington jersey and hat to the party. Scott didn’t appear to get injured in the video of the fight.

“We are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering more information. We will have no further comment at this time,” the Sixers said in a statement.

There was no arrests in the incident.

Scott stuck around and took selfies, according to posts by other fans.

He also posted to his social media once he was inside the stadium.

Scott has become a popular player in the city for responding to invitations on social media and showing up to hang out with fans. He dropped in at wedding reception earlier in the summer.

Radio Caller Claims to Have Been Involved in Incident With Sixers' Mike Scott, Shares His Side

A man who claims he was one of the tailgaters involved in an altercation Sunday with Sixers forward Mike Scott called in Tuesday to The Mike Missanelli Show.

Earlier in the day, 97.5 The Fanatic's Farzetta & Tra In The Morning show aired audio that they said preceded the incident with Scott. In the recording, a man shouted vulgar insults at fans wearing opposing jerseys.

The caller, purporting to be the man in that recording, said of Scott, "Nobody knew he was an NBA player. The minute we found out he was an NBA player, you want to talk about hearts sunk, grown men with tears in their eyes."

When asked by Missanelli whether any racial slurs were used, the caller said, "It's been coming out that it has. There's a lot of us there. I want to say no, but I would probably be justified in saying yeah, someone did, yes." :p

PhillyVoice's Kyle Neubeck reported that tailgaters had directed racial slurs in Scott's direction, citing witnesses at the scene.

A Sixers spokesperson told NBC Sports Philadelphia that the team is not treating the incident as a disciplinary matter.
