Melee Breaks Out at Game

Posted Monday --- February 4, 2008 ---

A 17 year-old Madison resident is facing charges after a weekend basketball brawl.

It happened Saturday afternoon at the Warner Park Community Center.

A witness told police it started after some -quote- "trash talking" among players and people in the stands.

Up to 50 people were involved in the fight.

17 year-old Xavier Michael Bridges was arrested for breaking a 35 year-old man's nose.

The MSCR director says this is the first time they've had problems with the basketball program.

A letter will be sent home with all students -- reminding them of the rules.

Two basketball teams have been suspended for the rest of the season.
