A large fight involving at least two players and several parents broke out at R.C. Loflin Middle School Saturday morning during a pee-wee football game involving Kennedale and Joshua teams, according to Burleson police, and one Joshua man was arrested on unrelated charges.
A federal agent, who was attending the game as a parent of a Kennedale player, unsuccessfully attempted to break up the fight, according to Burleson police.
During the game, two players began a fight, according to Burleson police. One eyewitness report given to the Burleson Star indicated the game had become physical before the fight ensued.
Parents from both teams, some with credentials and others without clearance, allegedly entered the field. A female from Kennedale, permitted to be on the field, was then allegedly punched by the Joshua man. The same parent also allegedly attempted to strike the federal agent.
The Joshua man fled from the scene of the game. Joshua police became involved when an officer attempted to stop the man in his vehicle, related to the fight, in the 100 block of E. 18th Street. He was charged by Joshua police with resisting arrest and evading arrest in a vehicle.
Burleson police were initially called to the scene of the fight because LMS is located within Burleson city limits.
A Burleson police investigation into the altercation is ongoing. The Joshua man's identity has not been released, pending the filing of the case by Burleson police. He is charged with assault, but has not been arrested on the charge, according to Burleson police. He could face both a misdemeanor assault charge and a felony assault charge, according to Burleson police.
Upon completion of a Burleson police file, the case will be presented to either Johnson County Attorney Bill Moore or District Attorney Dale Hanna for review.
