Wheelchair Basketball Game Ends In Fan Brawl


A wheelchair basketball game turned into something completely unexpected in Turkey.

During an IWBF Eurocup game some fans armed with bats and knives partook in a brawl. Though there were no serious injuries, police said the game had to be abandoned due to the violent nature of the fans. Seven fans were taken to the hospital, and six were released after treatment. No word on a make-up date for the game.
