A man rooting for the New Orleans Saints to beat the Vikings in last week's NFC Divisional playoff matchup is now facing a felony domestic assault charge after his roommate alleged he knocked her into a glass table while angry at the result of that game.

Arcoil Bordayo 38 of St. Louis Park, was charged earlier this week in Hennepin County.


According to the criminal complaint, officers responded to a reported assault at an apartment on the 1400 block of Hampshire Avenue South in St. Louis Park Sunday night - after the Vikings had defeated the Saints 29-24 on a last-second, 61-yard touchdown pass from Case Keenum to Stefon Diggs.

Bordayo's roommate alleged she came home to find him "drunk and upset because he wanted the Saints to win the playoff game he had been watching."

She then reportedly said she sat down on the couch while Bordayo went to his room, but that he returned after a short time and took the TV remote from her hand. When she attempted to get it back, she alleged, he knocked her over into the glass table.

The complaint states the roommate said she got up and went to the TV, but that Bordayo pushed her into a wall, causing a cut to the bridge of her nose.

The complaint notes Bordayo has reportedly been convicted of four domestic violence related offenses in the past 10 years.
