WALNUT — A show of force by deputies may have stopped a brawl from erupting after a football game Saturday at Mt. San Antonio College, authorities said.
Fans began arguing with each other heatedly following Mt. SAC’s 51-0 victory over Cerritos College, and sheriff’s officials were called for fear of a fight breaking out, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Mario Estrada said.
Deputies from the sheriff’s Walnut-Diamond Bar and Industry stations responded to the stadium with less-lethal weaponry such as rubber bullets at the ready, Estrada said.
Ultimately, however, the presence of deputies seemed to calm the situation, and Estrada said no injuries were reported and no arrests were made.
