Proving once again that all of the children at Little League games aren’t on the field, two people are facing charges after a brawl at an all-star tournament in Columbus.
The fight began Friday night after the Northern Little League defeated Harris County in the District 8 All-Star Tournament for 9- and 10-year-olds, the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reported.
According to a police report, a Northern parent was playing loud music in celebration of the win when a woman from the Harris County side took exception and told him to turn it down.
The Northern parent complied with the request, but, of course, that wasn’t the end of it. Words were exchanged and two husky men began duking it out and rolling around on the ground.
Police arrived and handcuffed Charles Davidson, 38, of Midland and Iram King, 36, of Cataula. The two men were ordered to appear in Columbus Recorder’s Court for an. Aug. 16 hearing.
“It’s about the most disgusting thing I have ever seen in Little League in all the years I’ve been doing it,” Bernard Ashley, a Little League administrator, told the Ledger-Enquirer.
Rick Chadwick, president of Pioneer Little League, noted the irony of adults behaving like children:
“You got kids trying to show their parents how to respect each other.”
Much of the action was captured on video.
