Little League fight ends in charge dismissed, paid fine

From staff reportsAugust 16, 2012 

Charles Davidson, 38, who was involved in the July Little League fight that officials called an embarrassment to the community, had his disorderly conduct charge dropped today in Columbus Recorder's Court.

Iram King, 36, paid his fine prior to court.

The fight happened after Northern Little League defeated Harris County at Britt David Park.

"It's about the most disgusting thing I have ever seen in Little League in all the years I've been doing it," Little League District 8 administrator Bernard Ashley said at the time.

In a report on the dispute, police said Davidson was playing loud music near the right field fence after Northern won the game. That's when a woman identified as Rose King and Iram King came over. She demanded that Davidson turn down the music, the report stated.

Police said Davidson turned down the music, but words were exchanged about the players. Iram King had started to walk toward Davidson when he said, "What do you want?" or "Why are you walking over here?"

A witness said Iram King told Davidson, "I'm here to f... you up."

Davidson's reply was, "Well, here I am," before police said the men tussled.

Ashley said he saw a little more than a tussle. "I seen a few punches throwed and mainly all I could see was a lot of pushing and shoving and wrestling."

He said he recognized Davidson as a Northern fan. "He has been to just about every game." Part of the fight was captured on video with screaming children and adults.
