HAMILTON -- The Argonauts were involved in two separate incidents with fans following last night's 33-30 loss to the Tiger Cats at Ivor Wynne Stadium.

Argos wide receiver Robert Baker said he pushed away a fan who laid his hands on him during a post-game interview.

"A fan came up on me while I was giving an interview and touched my body. I just pushed him away and then when I was walking up on him again they separated us. That's it."

"You don't want to see this happen," said Argos coach Michael Clemons. "One fan came up and got to Robert and he did a good job of controlling himself."

In another incident, Argos return specialist Bashir Levingston is believed to have tossed his helmet into the stands.

According to an eyewitness, Levingston became upset on his way to the dressing room when he was pelted with debris by someone in the crowd. Levingston threw his helmet into the stands and seconds later, the helmet was tossed back and the Argos equipment staff recovered it.

Clemons was seen talking to three young fans after being alerted to the alleged incident by local police.

"I said to Michael, find out the information and I'll talk to you tomorrow," said Argonauts president Keith Pelley.
