Tear Gas Used to Break up Wild Brawl at John Wall Holiday Tournament

Fan fights are happening at every level of sporting events.

This week a huge brawl broke at the John Wall Holiday tournament at Wake Tech in Raleigh. Tear gas was used by security to break up the fight and clear the building.

The basketball tournament forced a scheduled game to be postponed.

“What happened tonight doesn’t represent John Wall, the Triangle Education Advancement Foundation or the Holiday Invitational,” said co-tournament director Webb Wellman. “We love our players, we love our fans and we will work hard to make sure this doesn’t happen again. This event is about the love of the game and violence will never be acceptable.”

Twitter user @asapzeke caught the brawl on video that occurred during the tournament’s final game of the night.
