Caught on Cam: Brawl Breaks Out in Stands During Celebrity Basketball Game in Philly

The fight lasted for more than a minute and a half before the men involved began to disperse.

A large fight broke out at a celebrity basketball game at Temple University’s Liacouras Center Saturday afternoon.

The game, which featured former Temple athletes as well as professional athletes including NFL player Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, began at 3 p.m. Saturday. At some point during the game, a brawl featuring several men, broke out in the stands. Responding police officers helped disperse the fight and escorted the men outside.

There were no reported injuries and no arrests, according to a spokesperson for Temple University. Officials have not yet revealed what started the fight.

The promoter of the event spoke to NBC10.

"I was sitting court side and I noticed a lot of people randomly stand up and look in a certain direction," he said. "The game had stopped so I walked on the court over to the area in question to see what was going on. It was a quarrel that went on for a little bit. After that was settled and resolved in a quick fashion the event continued."
