MLS player racially abused by fan

7:03 am on 14 October 2008

A Major League Soccer fan in the United States has been banned from Houston Dynamo games indefinitely after an incident in which DC United goalkeeper Louis Crayton had to be restrained.

Security personnel escorted the fan from the Houston Stadium after he directed racist language at Crayton near the Dynamo's clubhouse after a nil-all draw.

Crayton, a native of Liberia, had to be restrained after he jumped over the fence to confront the man who abused him.

Major League Soccer is investigating.
