The caller said his wife consumed three Styrofoam cups of red wine before the game and finished one prior to entering the stadium, according to the report. The caller stated he did not sit with his family inside the stadium.

The caller’s father-in-law came to him during the game because his wife was ”acting strange,” according to the report. He said his wife’s eyes were dilated and she was struggling to stay awake. According to the report, she left the game alone to return to her hotel room. On her way back, she fell and was helped by an unknown individual.
