Brawl, Arrests at Wyo. School Basketball Tourney
RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) — At least two people have been arrested after a brawl in the stands during a regional basketball tournament game at Lander Valley High School.
The Associated Press says Bryan Brown and Ladeena Bell, both of Riverton, were arrested on suspicion of assault following the brawl Thursday evening during the Class 1-A West regional tournament. Little Snake River defeated St. Stephen’s 77-66 to win the game.
Lander Police Chief Jim Carey says the fight started when one person pushed another and soon escalated to involve 10 to 15 people.
He said after the fight that security cameras caught the brawl on tape and that more arrests could be coming.
Brown and Bell have unlisted phone numbers, and they couldn’t be reached for comment Monday.
