Rumble in the Gump

A personal foul and retaliation led to a wicked free-for-all during a high school basketball game Tuesday in Montgomery, Ala.

The fight broke out immediately after a foul with just over six minutes remaining in the Round Two state playoff contest between Carver-Montgomery and Valley and caused officials to call the game in favor of Carver, who was ahead, 52-37, when play was interrupted.

The video is here, but the most frightening portion of the clip occurs minutes after the disturbance on the court has been quelled. A large group of crowd members breaks out into a melee of its own, fists and arms flying, people tumbling down bleachers, and law enforcement officials struggling to maintain control.
