Men scuffle on rec center basketball court
Vail, CO Colorado
GYPSUM, Colorado –Two 37-year-old men were cited by police after they got into a scuffle at the Gypsum Rec Center on March 7.
One of the men said he was playing basketball with a friend. Two kids were throwing a football and hit his friend in the head twice. A rec center employee told the kids they couldn’t play football in that area but the kids started again when the employee left.
Witnesses said the man started yelling and cursing at the kids. A father of one of the kids came out of the locker room and confronted the man. Witnesses said the man made racial insults and pushed the father.
The man said the father pushed him back, “blowed up and swung” at him, his fist nicking his chin.
The father was charged with harassment and the other man with disorderly conduct.
