A verbal confrontation between two sets of spectators escalated into a chaotic brawl after someone got pushed at a youth softball tournament.
KINGSPORT, Tenn. (AP) — Video shows a brawl that broke out between parents and fans of two North Carolina girls softball teams at a Tennessee park.
The Kingsport Times-News reports the fight happened Saturday in Kingsport during a 12-and-under tournament sponsored by USA Softball.
Todd McLemore with Kingsport’s Parks and Recreation Department says a verbal confrontation between two sets of spectators escalated into a chaotic brawl after someone got pushed.
A video shows more than a half-dozen fans tackling each other to the ground amid a flurry of punches and kicks.
No injuries were reported, and no one was arrested, but both teams — the East Wilkes Cardinals and the Blue Ridge Explosion — were disqualified from the tournament.
