DETROIT (WWJ) – Wayne State Police are recommending changes at the school’s football stadium following an altercation during Friday night’s Cass Tech and Brother Rice game there.
The fight broke out between people who Police Chief Tony Holt says were not affiliated with either school playing. He believes they entered the stadium when the gates opened to the public during the third quarter, after ticket sales stopped.
“What would we do differently? We probably would not allow that many people in the stadium,” said Holt. ” Once the ticket stadium is sold-out … we’ll leave it at that.”
Holt denies reports by other media outlets that say a gun was brandished during the fight and that the altercation drove people from the stands. He calls it a mere “skirmish” and says the people involved were arrested.
