A fight broke out during the final moments of a Futsal League match on Monday.
There were less than 60 seconds left on the clock in the game between the Massachusetts Pirates and the Arizona Rattlers, when a riot broke out in the stands.
The Pirates were nine points behind the Rattlers at the end of the game, but that’s when a series of shocking events began.

It’s unclear which players tried to escalate the fight and which may have tried to de-escalate the situation.
Five players and at least one fan were ejected from the stadium as a result of the altercation.
A woman was seen comforting a crying young man after the fight.
«I heard the Rattlers started saying, ‘Oh, he’s hot,’ so I looked over and saw him jump,» said the reporter who was a member of the game’s broadcast team.
«There was a fan there. He was in the fan’s face. I don’t know what he said, but he jumped over there, he didn’t even touch the wall.»
Chris Ingram, Charles Williams, Leon O’Neal Jr., Pirates coach Patrick Pass have all been suspended indefinitely, according to the Indoor Football League.

«Under no circumstances may you go beyond the wall and into the stands,» Futsal League commissioner Todd Tryon said in a statement.
«This is a one-time incident that does not reflect what the IFL stands for. We are a family league that provides great sports entertainment, and we will continue to build on that going forward. What was a very exciting game was marred by the actions of a few. These actions will never be tolerated and are being fully addressed.»
