Police were forced to use tear gas to break up a nasty fan brawl during a heated wheelchair basketball game in Turkey recently. The two teams involved were rivals Galatasary and Besiktas, and the match was being played at Ahmet Comert Sports Hall in Istanbul. If I had a nickle for every wheelchair basketball riot video I’ve seen… According to Euronews: Several players and supporters were reportedly hurt in the chaos. The following day at least ten fans were arrested after police reviewed the footage. Fans of three rival Istanbul clubs – Galatasaray, Besiktas and Fenerbahce – are not allowed to attend away games between these clubs at soccer and basketball games, but the regulation doesn’t apply to other sports. The ban is now likely to cover wheelchair basketball. [Busted Coverage via Euronews] Article found on: Cosby Sweaters
