COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) -- Little league officials in Columbus, Georgia say a brawl involving adults that was captured on videotape is an embarrassment to the players and the city.

The fighting broke out Friday evening, minutes after a game between Northern Little League and Harris County. Two adults were arrested and ordered to appear in court on Aug. 16.

Video shows two middle-aged men fighting near an outfield wall. Other fans rush to the scene, with some adults trying to break up the altercation.

Little League District 8 Administrator Bernard Ashley, who has been involved with the league for 35 years, says it was "about the most disgusting thing I have ever seen in Little League in all the years I've been doing it."

No serious injuries were reported.

    The national news reported one man asked the other to turn down his music. It started from there.

    This probably wasn't even about the game. Two men who probably been having trouble happen to run into each other at the game, then the fight was on.You know you can't put two roosters in the same pen.
