The fan was waving a flare when the security guard sprayed him with pepper-spray, which is highly flammable.

Apparently the cop who sprayed the fan with pepper spray will not be prosecuted as the fan was holding an illegal flare via @przeglad

Watch in the lower-left corner as the fan is on top of the security fence, before being sprayed with pepper-spray by the security guard.
