Play nice, Seahawks fans, the law is watching you

Consider yourselves warned, 'Hawks fans. That guy in a 49ers jersey you're thinking about taunting, just know that he might actually be a cop.

The Seahawks announced Wednesday that undercover law enforcement officers will be at games this season wearing opposing team jerseys to "quickly detect fans exhibiting unruly and inconsiderate behavior."

"We have great fans," Seahawks president Peter McLoughlin said in a press release. "Our goal is to ensure a safe environment for all in attendance, including visiting team fans."

Behavior that is unruly, disruptive or illegal in nature

Intoxication or other signs of alcohol or substance impairment that results in irresponsible behavior

Interference with the progress of the game (including throwing objects onto the field)
