Fight at Butler-East Meck basketball game last night

**UPDATE: WCNC reports that charges have been filed against Ernest Owens, the father of the Butler girls basketball player who got into the fight with the East Meck resource officer. Also, the WCNC video is slowly making its way around the internet. CNN just ran the video and story in the 10 am hour today.

It’s difficult to make out just how the fight between a parent and a CMS resourcer started last night at the Butler-East Meck basketball game. Posts on message boards and social networks suggest that some of the Butler girls basketball team went to the opposing side of the gym to say hello to friends after the Lady Bulldogs beat the Lady Eagles 88-17. The East Meck AD apparently gave them permission. The resource officer then got into an argument with one of the parents and the fight ensued.

Because of new school assignment zones this year, many of the East Meck students now go to Butler, so there was bound to be at least a little love/tension in the air after the Lady Bulldogs won the game by such a large margin.
