Nick Lachey Accuser

He Choked Me And

Called My Wife a B*tch

Nick Lachey isn't just a heckler ... he CHOKED a San Diego Chargers fan at Qualcomm Stadium on Sunday and called the guy's wife a "f**king b*tch" ... this according to multiple people involved in the incident ... but Nick says it's all BS.

TMZ has obtained new video ... which shows Lachey getting aggressive with a Chargers fan who was wearing an Igor Olshansky #99 jersey (Igor played for SD from 2004 to 2008). 

We spoke to the guy in the jersey ... who tells us Lachey and his buddies -- all die-hard Bengals fans -- had been talking trash to him about the jersey for most of the 2nd half of the game.

The Chargers fan says Lachey made one particularly offensive comment about Olshansky that crossed the line ... and that's when the fan's wife shot back to Nick, "Well, he lasted longer than your boy band."

We're told Lachey flipped out and called the wife a "f**king b*tch" ... along with "a host of other profanities."

Tensions exploded ... and the Chargers fan says Nick lunged towards him ... grabbed him by the throat and shoved him to the ground. The fight can be seen in the footage obtained by TMZ.

As we previously reported, stadium security quickly responded and ejected Nick and his buddies. The Chargers fans were NOT asked to leave.

After the incident, Nick went to Twitter and BRAGGED about the situation -- saying, "Just got kicked out of the chargers stadium and couldn't be prouder! Go Cincy Bengals."

He later acknowledged the altercation ... tweeting, "i simply don't appreciate someone turning around and putting their finger in my face. call me crazy, but that deserved a reaction."

We're told the Chargers fan plans to file a police report against Lachey.

Nick's rep tells TMZ, “This was a verbal exchange between sports fans of opposing teams that went too far. While Nick isn't proud of what happened, he did not choke anyone or use defamatory language to any women at the stadium -- which the video tape clearly supports."

The rep also says police interviewed Nick outside the stadium and released him without charges.

Please Chargers suck and the lady probably thought of that boy band line 10 min after he was asked to leave. Dude sees Lachey and thought payday!! Score!! Why not file a police report right after? SD police are there at the stadium.

Nick's always been a good guy, he was just defending himself. Violence at Football games are started by fans like that.

BTW...TMZ, since when do you guys do "investigative reporting", you people suck! You're the same guys who posted Michael Phelps' bong picture, Rihanna's bloodied face, Harry's bare ass. You people need to mind your own damn business sometimes and don't act like you wouldn't do the same thing in some of these people's lives, so get your own.

You suck.

He's denying what's visible on the tape? And multiple witness comments? It sounds like we have another "has been-rules don't apply to me-liar" on our hands. That may be good--because some of the other ones will be in jail for awhile.

I can only imagine the poor man and his wife will have the worst cases of PTSD ever recorded, along with not being able to sleep or eat or work. Especially not being able to work anymore. I guess Nick is going to have to pay for that. I think you have two grifters who got lucky. I also think if Nick wants to drink and watch football he should invite a bunch of friends over to watch it in his screening room. That ends that.
