We’ve been looking into a tip about a brawl that took place last Friday night (5/14) near Whitman Middle School in Crown Hill. Police now tell MyBallard that officers responded to the 1500 block of NW 90th Street around 11:30pm after receiving calls that a large crowd had gathered to watch a fight between three men. One witness tells us the scene was choatic:
There was a full-on fifty person fight club going on. They looked mostly like 19-21 year olds… It was in the baseball field parking lot next to Olympic Manors. All the neighbors were outside watching this huge blob of yelling humanity move around the parking lot and baseball field. It was mostly 2 or 3 people fighting at a time with the rest of the mass just yelling and pushing.
Officers did not write an incident report since all of the people scattered and ran when they arrived. Whether this was indeed some kind of fight club isn’t clear. But security officers tell MyBallard they do know of fight clubs made up of middle and high school students around Seattle.
