Brawl Breaks Out at West Seattle High School Basketball Game

By Jonah Spangenthal-Lee February 12, 2010

WSB has the story:

Police had to help break up a melee that led to tonight’s boys’ varsity basketball game at West Seattle High School getting cut short.

At the gym, WSB co-publisher Patrick Sand, who’s covered numerous games around WS this season, says the game had less than five minutes to go when he saw two players, one from Rainier Beach HS and one from WSHS, get into a confrontation on the floor, then someone “came out of nowhere” to join the melee, police stepped in, someone in the stands was yelling at the refs, and others joined in the criticism of the refs.
