Massive brawl breaks out at end of Kansas-Kansas State game

Ryan YoungWriter January 21, 2020 The end of No. 3 Kansas’ 81-60 win against Kansas State did not go well on Tuesday night at Allen Fieldhouse. Instead, the blowout rivalry game ended in an all-out brawl. As Kansas started dribbling out the clock while holding a 22-point lead in the final seconds, Kansas State’s DaJuan Gordon stole the ball and started dribbling down the court in an effort to secure one last layup. Kansas’ Silvio De Sousa, however, sprinted behind Gordon and came up with a massive block as he attempted the layup, sending Gordon down into the baseline. Almost instantly, both teams swarmed the scene on the baseline, which sparked the wild brawl that spilled down into the crowd and media section underneath the basket. Several punches were thrown in the incident, and De Sousa even picked up a chair at one point, though it was taken away from him before he could do anything with it. It took several arena staff, coaches, police officers and even cheerleaders to break up the fight. After things had settled, both teams were called back out from the locker rooms and one-tenth of a second was added back onto the clock. Kansas Keep Reading

Dodgers Fan Sues Team for Alleged Lack of Security Leading to Assault

The lawsuit states Dodgers security did not take steps to ensure the plaintiff’s safety. By City News Service • Published at 5:52 pm on December 5, 2019 A Dodgers fan who alleges the team provided inadequate security and a lack of uniformed Los Angeles police officers the night he was beaten by two other men inside Dodger Stadium during an extra-inning playoff game in 2018 is suing the National League team and his two alleged assailants. Milton Flores’ Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit names as defendants Los Angeles Dodgers LLC, Guggenheim Baseball Management LP, Guggenheim Baseball Management GP LLC and the two alleged assailants, Robert and Jaime Joe Berumen. The suit does not state the relationship between the Berumens. The suit filed Wednesday seeks unspecified damages. A Dodgers representative did not immediately reply to a request for comment. The suit states that “upon information and belief” Dodger Stadium has the highest crime rate of any Major League Baseball venue. The team previously staffed security with off-duty uniformed Los Angeles police officers and both sworn and non-sworn security guards, the suit states. The team decreased security in 2004, possibly because of former owner Frank McCourt’s financial troubles, the suit states. Four Keep Reading

Yale stuns Harvard as protest draws national attention, dozens of arrests

By Jim Fuller and Dan Haar Updated 11:27 pm EST, Saturday, November 23, 2019 NEW HAVEN — Spurred by a generational call to action on climate change, hundreds of spectators stormed the Yale Bowl field Saturday in protest, delaying by 40 minutes a Yale-Harvard football game that was momentous even without a collision of sports and political culture. It was two historic events playing out in parallel. Yale’s double-overtime, comeback win over Harvard — a 50-43 stunner — instantly took on legendary status in the annals of one of college football’s most prestigious rivalries. And likewise, the climate protesters’ uprising at halftime showed the rising sense of urgency, led by students worldwide, that powerful institutions such as Harvard and Yale be forced to reckon with what they call the evils of fossil fuels. The protesters – Yale Endowment Justice Coalition and Divest Harvard, listed on the pamphlet obtained by Hearst Connecticut Media – demanded with chants and unfurled signs that both universities clear their combined, $71 billion endowments of investments in corporations tied to oil, gas and coal. They also protested the schools’ holdings in Puerto Rico debt, seen as exploitation of a poor, besieged territory of the U.S. https://www.nhregister.com/colleges/article/Protest-at-Yale-Harvard-delays-start-of-2nd-half-14857798.php

Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting survivors sue organizers of the event

By Alejandra Reyes-Velarde- LA Times Nov. 12, 2019 Five people injured in a shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in July are suing the event’s organizers, saying negligent security contributed to the deadly encounter. Randall Scarlett, an attorney representing the shooting survivors, filed a lawsuit in Santa Clara County Superior Court on Tuesday morning, four months after the shooting in Northern California that left three dead and more than a dozen injured. The suit says the Gilroy Garlic Festival Assn. and the security company working the event, First Alarm Security and Inc., should have been aware of the risk of a mass shooting, increased patrols and secured the perimeter at the event. “They had an entire back area [that] had no monitoring whatsoever,” Scarlett said at a news conference. “What’s the price you’re willing to pay to say the risk is too great? Reasonable steps would have avoided this completely.” The survivors are seeking an unspecified amount in compensation, partly to cover growing medical costs, according to Scarlett. Thousands were in attendance at the popular food festival at the “Garlic Capital of the World” in Santa Clara County when a gunman later identified as Santino William Legan opened fire, authorities said.

The sound of the gunshots sent people running across the field as the P.A. announcer called on spectators to evacuate. “Security, could you please clear the stadium,” the announcer said as spectators sprinted across the field. “Everybody out.” It was not immediately clear if the shots rang out inside or outside the stadium, but police said multiple shell casings were found outside, according to reports.

Bills will increase police and security presence for home opener to contain unruly fans

Shanna McCarriston Sep 19, 2019 Buffalo Bills fans are known for their wild tailgates, but for this season’s home opener they may be stopped from throwing each other off tables and lighting things on fire. With the Bills off to a 2-0 start, officials in the area are worried the scene may be even crazier than normal and are taking precautions at New Era Field. For Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals, the stadium will be equipped with 300 law enforcement personnel and 300 private security personal in an attempt to contain the crazy. The Orchard Park area, where the stadium sits, is also planning to increase patrols on the road for the game. Bills vice president of operations and guest experience Andy Major says that the efforts to control the fans and increase stadium safety is getting better, but there is room for improvement. “Not that long ago, we averaged 30 (in-stadium) arrests per game and 140 ejections a game,” he told The Buffalo News. “Last year we averaged three arrests and 46 ejections a game. We’re not perfect. We know that. Local police do not believe the majority of fans cause a disturbance, but that rather a small Keep Reading
