The husband of vice-chair Karren Brady is understood to have been involved in a violent disagreement with travelling West Ham fans following yesterday's 3-2 defeat at Wigan.
Paul Peschisolido - who is also the current manager of Burton Albion - is reported to have lost his temper when a supporter approached his wife in their first-class carriage as they returned to the Midlands with their children following the match, which condemned the Irons to relegation.
Differing accounts of the events leading up to Peschisolido's intervention have been given, although all are consistent in claiming that 40-year-old former Sheffield United star had to be physically restrained from attacking the fan.
Brady - whose tenure as vice-chair began just 15 months ago - is no stranger to controversy where Hammers fans are concerned.
Last year she was held culpable for the decision to remove complimentory season tickets from the family of John Lyall, whilst only last week she told Hammers fans to 'bog off' following her absence from the recent 2-1 defeat at Manchester City.

''John Lyall's family can pay their own way like everyone else. This club is not a charity. Every supporter who pays his hard earned is just as important as John Lyall's family. If that family wants to attend West Ham United matches, they can pay like anybody else. And the same goes for celebrity freeloaders like Ray Winstone etc.''

''KUMB should be too good to try to be some sort of tabloid gossip site. It may be interesting that she and her family travelled with fans and that they had some minor argument, but this article seems like it wants to turn the heat on far too much. This was no big deal. The thing at Man City was no big deal either as we could understand that she didn't go to Man City that day. If we knew why. Which we learnt.
The Lyall family tickets was bad though, but that was not just up to her I think. And that was ten months back now.''
