The mishap occurred while Desai was heading to the game after having a few drinks while watching the New England Patriots defeat the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Championship game.

He says he got pumped up watching a group of Eagles fans on a train heading in the opposite direction and wanted to get them excited. Video captured him running with the train car, before hitting the pole and bumping into the train.
