|The following “bizarre” reports were on file last week with Murfreesboro Police.
A women’s slow-pitch recreational softball game that erupted in a brawl Tuesday night at Star Plex Ball Fields in Murfreesboro became so heated police were called to the scene to quell the violence.
The conflict culminated with multiple players from both teams receiving minor injuries, according to a Murfreesboro Police Department incident report.
“I was dispatched to Star Plex on a disturbance call,” Officer Robert Holloway reported. “Upon arrival, I made contact with one victim who stated that during a softball game, she was pushed down by a player from the other team.”
Within moments, another player on the same team as the first victim was also pushed down.
“A player from the other team stated that she was pushed at the neck by (someone) from the victim’s team,” Holloway reported.
By that point, both teams stormed the field from the dugout – sparking an all-out brawl.
“This softball game was stopped by the umpire after two bench clearings,” Holloway reported, “and several confrontations by players from both teams.”
As of Friday, no one had been arrested or charged in connection with the incident, and the matter remains under investigation.
Further information on whether the teams will be allowed to play at Star Plex was not immediately available.
