To celebrate a game-winning pass break-up against the Buffalo Bills last week, Marcus Peters jumped into the crowd of friendly fans in enemy territory and crushed a beer.

The NFL decided it just couldn’t let that fun moment happen without a little discipline, and Bud Light recognized the perfect opportunity once Peters was fined $14,037 for “unsportsmanlike conduct,” according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Peters didn’t seem too regretful on Twitter after the fine was reported.

The “offense” occurred after the Bills’ last chance to tie the game, in which Peters prevented Bills wide receiver John Brown from catching a potential touchdown pass from Josh Allen.

After the play, Peters never stopped running. CBS cameras soon found him in the stands, downing the beer at the 15-second mark below. The Ravens offense would kneel out the rest of the game to improve their record to 11-2.

This is the first NFL discipline Peters has received since coming over to the Ravens from the Los Angeles Rams in a midseason trade, though it’s not his first gameday incident with the team. He also got into an ugly squabble with Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who effectively replaced him on his old team, during the Ravens’ blowout win in November.

The Ravens probably don’t mind that stuff too much, especially since Peters’ arrival has helped transform a unit that was struggling in the early part of the season.

And the fine could work out well for a charity of Peters’ choice too. Not long after the news of Peters’ fine broke, Bud Light jumped on the opportunity to gain a little goodwill in Baltimore and offered to make a donation to charity in the amount of Peters’ fine.

We’ll see how Peters responds to the beer giant’s inquiry. And we’re guessing that a few more Ravens fans than normal may be drinking Bud Light while watching football on Sunday.
