Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools athletics director Vicki Hamilton said school officials will wait until Monday to decide on what action to take following Friday’s incident during the
Butler at East Mecklenburg basketball doubleheader.
Following a blowout win by
’s girls, a parent of a Butler High starter was arrested after getting into a fight with a school resource officer. The incident was captured on video by WCNC, Channel 36, which was at the game filming highlights for its “Friday Night Frenzy” highlights show. Butler
According to reports from the game and the video, a fight broke out between the father and the officer. Then the man’s wife jumped in, along with the daughter, and began hitting the officer on the head.
Sources say the incident started after the officer asked the player to sit on the
side of the gym. Several East Mecklenburg girls' players transferred to Butler this season and the schools have a long rivalry. Butler
