A baseball game between 7-year-old children disintegrated into a fight between parents who became enraged over calls made by a 13-year-old umpire, authorities said.
Colorado police released video of the melee, asking for help in identifying a man in a white T-shirt and teal shorts. Lakewood police officers arrived at Westgate Elementary School on Saturday while the fight was still in progress, authorities said.
In the video, parents scream as punches are thrown. One woman is heard praying.
Several adults were cited, police said, and others were injured.
These adults took over the field and began assaulting each other on 6/15 during a youth baseball game. We're looking for any info, in particular to ID the man in the white shirt/teal shorts. Several people have already been cited in this fight and injuries were reported. pic.twitter.com/ieenhwCrbU— Lakewood Police (@LakewoodPDCO) June 18, 2019
