RPAC Pick-Up Basketball Game Results in Three Reported for Assault

Anybody who has ever played pick-up basketball knows how competitive it can get when it comes to fouls. Welp, it appears some gents took it to the next level, according to The Lantern:

Three men were reported for assault after they got in a fight during a two-on-two basketball game at the RPAC Sunday at about 5:30 p.m.

Two of the men got into a verbal argument over whether a foul had occurred, which escalated into a physical fight involving the third man and left “several significant blood stain areas,” on the gym floor, according to a University Police report.

... One of the men sustained a one-inch-long cut between his eyebrows and his front tooth was broken in half, and he had several small cuts on both hands. The individual was transported to the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center to receive stitches for the cut on his face.

Another man had significant bruising and swelling on his face, in addition to small cuts on his ear, elbow and both of his hands.

No charges were immediately pressed, as the case was referred to the Franklin County Prosecutor's Office for the final decision on the matter.

Unlike most pick-up games, where results are forgotten in 24-hours, I'm sure these three idiots will remember the outcome for a long, long time.
