LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Team spirit for the Colts apparently turned violent in Indianapolis over the weekend.

A man riding his bike wearing a Pittsburgh Steelers jersey told police he was run over by a Colts fan in a truck around 1 p.m. on October 7.

The wife of the alleged victim says "he went out for a bike ride and he was on his way home, and he said some guy in a blue truck pulled up in a blue truck and said 'you need to take off that Pittsburgh jersey, you should be wearing Colts. And you need to go to hell.'"

The attack sent the victim to the hospital with severe injuries, including a dislocated jaw.

His family is in shock over the attack.

Indianapolis police are still looking for the suspect.
