A fight between two high school basketball players at a tournament in Illinois on Friday night quickly turned into an all out brawl. An Alton-Riverview Gardens basketball game ended early when the family and friends joined in on the melee.
The brawl got so out of hand that the police who were at the event had to call for backup to get things under control. Needless to say the tournament was also cancelled.
Video footage I shot of the unfortunate, awful Alton-Riverview Gardens brawl. Insane. pic.twitter.com/cOhkDZfkjU

No better day for this brawl to have broken out than the day after Thanksgiving. The PA announcer trying to get everyone to calm down is the cherry on top.
