United's Crayton goes after Dynamo fan after racist insult

A fan has been banned from Houston Dynamo games indefinitely after an incident Sunday night in which United goalkeeper Louis Crayton had to be restrained.

Security personnel escorted the fan from Robertson Stadium after he directed racist language at Crayton near the Dynamo's clubhouse after a 0-0 tie in Houston.

"It is so sad that he would say that to me," Crayton said, according to The Washington Post. "I am saying hi to the fans and he walked up to me and told me, 'Hey, you're a monkey, go back to the jungle.' I told him, 'Hey, you can't say that to me. I am not a monkey, I am a human being like you.'

"I jumped over to ask him why he insulted me, and he kept going."

Crayton, a native of Liberia, made two saves for United (10-14-4), including one in the last minute of second-half stoppage time, to salvage the draw with Houston (11-5-11).

"The Dynamo have informed Major League Soccer of the incident and the identity of the individual, and further actions may be taken," the Dynamo said in a news release.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
