Two parents in Columbus, Ga., started an argument that turned into a multi-person fight Saturday, the Ledger-Enquirer reports.

Pioneer Little League president Rick Chadwick said the brawl erupted after Northern Little League defeated Harris County at Britt David Park. Northern parent Charles Davidson, 38, began playing music after his son’s team won the game. Harris County parents Rose and Iram King approached Davidson and demanded that he turn down the music. Davidson agreed, but he and Iram King exchanged words and then became physical.

The confrontation escalated when more men got involved, some trying to break up the fight.

“It’s about the most disgusting thing I have ever seen in Little League in all the years I’ve been doing it,” said Bernard Ashley, Little League District 8 administrator.

“It’s very embarrassing not only to each of those leagues but the whole city of Columbus,” Chadwick agreed. “You got kids trying to show their parents how to respect each other.”

Davidson and King were each charged with one count of disorderly conduct and were ordered to appear in a Columbus court on Aug. 16.
