(KSL News) A fan kicked out of a Real Salt Lake game says the team violated his first amendment rights and that now he might file a lawsuit.

Colin Coker and another man were escorted out of the team's game against China because they were holding up signs protesting the country's occupation of Tibet. Real officials say they made the move when several members of China's team threatened to walk off the field.

Coker says he has contacted the ACLU to look at grounds for a potential lawsuit.
