Parents behaving badly at games has reached another level when violence gets introduced.
A brawl at an Oklahoma high school girls’ basketball game was captured on video and went viral on social media this week. After Friday’s playoff game between Star Spencer High School and Tulsa’s Central High School footage showed cheerleaders, fans, and parents engaging in a massive brawl on the court.
Skylar Brooks, the woman who shot the video, said the fight came out of nowhere.
“It really wasn’t a dirty game. I mean, everybody seemed normal. So, it definitely caught me off guard,” Brooks said. “… There were a few players involved, but most of the players were standing back. So, yeah, it was definitely, I would say more of the fans and parents.”
The fight lasted for several minutes before the police were able to break it up. According to Brooks, there was no security or police presence at the game. Police remained at the school for a boys’ game that was slated to take place after the girls’ contest.
Several adults seen fighting on the video were barred from attending athletic events for the rest of the school year by Tulsa Public Schools.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
