(SBSUN) — A large fight broke out between dozens of parents Saturday at a Pop Warner football game at Ayala Park and officers donned riot helmets to deal with the combatants.

“We only had our helmets on for our protection because when you get a call of a fight between two and three hundred people, you want to be protected,” said police Sgt. Frank Mena.

No one was seriously injured during the fisticuffs, and most of the battling parents ran off as officers made their way into the park, Mena said.
