Parents brawl during youth baseball game after disagreeing with 13-year-old umpire
LAKEWOOD, CO - A baseball game between a group of 7-year-olds escalated into an all-out brawl with parents throwing punches and others running for cover.
The fight began at Westgate Elementary School in Lakewood, Colorado, a suburb southwest of Denver, on Saturday at about noon as 15 to 20 adults got into a violent tussle, according to Lakewood police.
Reports say the melee took off because a parent didn't like the calls being made by a 13-year-old umpire. Parents were still fighting as Lakewood police arrived at the scene.
Police issued four citations for disorderly conduct but said they are still searching for others involved in the fight.
Police are looking for an adult in a white T-shirt and teal shorts in particular because he can be seen in the video throwing sucker punches at people looking in the other direction. Police said it is unknown if this person is a parent of one of the children in the game.
There were a few minor injuries and one person suffered serious bodily injury, police told ABC News.
