Fights halt boys game at Woodlawn

December 17, 1996|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

What started as a basketball game between neighborhood rivals last night ended in chaos at Woodlawn High, as a fight among fans spilled onto the court during halftime of the contest between Randallstown and Woodlawn.

The incident began at about 8: 20 p.m., when a fight between fans broke out in the bleachers. The fight moved onto the court, where more members of the crowd of about 1,200 joined in.

Approximately 25 units from the Baltimore County police department arrived shortly thereafter to break up fights and disperse the crowd. No one was reported injured, though one woman was treated by paramedics at the scene for an asthma attack. No arrests were made at the scene.
