HOUMA - Four adults and two juveniles were arrested during and after the H.L. Bourgeois and Thibodaux High School football game Friday night.

Tre Starks witnessed the ordeal. He said officers walked up to the top of the bleachers around halftime and began pointing tasers and yelling at a group of people.

"This situation was literally too extreme," bystander Tre Starks said.

Witnesses said after the group was escorted out, another person was arrested at the bottom of the steps.

"One little boy was looking for his sister, and they grabbed his arm, slammed him on the ground, and tased him," Starks said.
