Police: 11 adults, 1 teen cited after youth baseball brawl
LAKEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Police say a dozen people have now been cited for disorderly conduct after a brawl during a youth baseball game in Colorado.
Lakewood police had previously announced the citations to six people and provided an updated total on Thursday.
Police received a video of the June 15 fight from a spectator and released it on Facebook, asking for help identifying anyone who participated.
According to a statement, 11 of the people cited are adults and one is 16 years old.
Authorities said the fight at a game between teams of 7-year-olds began when parents and coaches disagreed with a 13-year-old umpire’s decisions.
The Bear Creek Junior Sports Association canceled the remaining games for both teams.
