Minden Police Involved in Basketball Brawl [VIDEO]
We spoke with Minden Mayor Terry Gardner who said several of the visitors from Benton were sitting on the railing. They were told several times to get off the railing because it could be dangerous. They refused to get off the railing.
One man was arrested. He's 23 and not believed to be a student at Benton. He apparently kicked the police dog causing bruised ribs.The dog had to be transported to a vet to be checked out.
Minden Police officers have been filmed getting into an aggressive altercation with students and fans at a high school basketball game.
In Minden, during the Minden vs. Benton girl's basketball game, officers are seen separating a group of what appears to be students. The video itself starts moments after the altercation begins, as stated by the person who posted the video.
One of the comments on the Facebook post explained what he saw; "If they would have gotten off the rail they first time that the police asked them to, it never would have come to this. If they would have gotten off the rail the second time the police asked them to, it never would have come to this. If they would have gotten off the rail even the third time the police asked them to, it never would have come to this."
As of right now, this is the only video we have of the incident.
