Tens of thousands flocked to the streets of Philly Sunday following the historic Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl victory. The wild scenes were captured on social media and went viral within minutes.

Now, a 20-year-old Malvern man faces a number of charges after videos surfaced on social media showing what appears to be the suspect, joining a group of people as they lift and flip a Nissan Rogue.

The son of longtime Villanova University basketball broadcaster Whitey Rigsby was arrested Wednesday and accused of flipping over a car during the celebrations in the area of the 1400 block of Walnut Street outside of the Hyatt at The Bellevue.

Police told reporters “several individuals were celebrating in a riotous manner, crowding around a small silver colored 2017 Nissan Rogue” when approximately 7 individuals lined up along the passenger side of the vehicle, grabbed hold of the vehicle and flipped it over onto its driver’s side door causing dents and scratches to it.

Several viral videos posted on social media appear to show Rigsby in a white Nick Foles jersey, joining a group of people as they lift the Nissan.

Following the incident, Rigsby appears to pound his chest and scream “Let’s go!”

20-year-old Rigsby now faces charges of vandalism and related charges.
