Tweed Hockey Fight Video Prompts Investigation (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

TWEED, Ont. - An online video that captured a brawl in the stands of a minor hockey game in a small Ontario community has caught the attention of provincial police.

The video posted on YouTube Sunday afternoon shows adults taunting each other until the crowd erupts in a massive fist fight.

At one point, a man who appears to be pulling another from the melee is dragged backwards until he falls to the ground while a woman — possibly the videographer — screams.

The caption says the footage was shot Saturday at the Bantam C hockey finals in Tweed, about halfway between Ottawa and Toronto.

OPP Const. Alana Deubel says police are aware of the video and are reviewing it to determine whether charges are warranted.

The clip had been viewed more than 13,000 times by midday Monday and was being shared on social media.
