OMG!! I lost my cell phone.

Fan melee erupts at girls basketball game at Alabama high school, stun-guns fired
February 03, 2005 10:43 AM EST
PRATTVILLE, Alabama - A fight broke out in the stands of a girls high school basketball game, prompting police to fire Tasers to stop it and clear the gym, authorities said. Nine people face charges.

Arrest warrants were issued for three adults and six juveniles, including three teens taken into custody Tuesday night, District Attorney Randall Houston said Thursday. Among the charges were assault, disorderly conduct and refusing to obey an officer, he said.

Witnesses said Tuesday night's melee, involving dozens of fans, began in an upper deck and spilled onto the floor. It was apparently sparked by an earlier dispute between students of the two rival schools, Prattville and Stanhope Elmore.

Police hit some participants with Tasers, which can incapacitate a person with an electrical jolt, Police Chief Alfred Wadsworth said.

The fight was captured on video and shown on television.

"People were screaming and running," Prattville cheerleader Cherish Cartee said. "Girls lost their cell phones. Keys got lost. It's something I will never forget."
