Pacers Brawl With Fans During Pistons Game

By LARRY LAGE, AP Sports Writer

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - Indiana's Ron Artest and Stephen Jackson charged into the stands and fought with fans in the final minute of their game against the Detroit Pistons (news) on Friday night, forcing an early end to the Pacers' 97-82 win.

The game was stopped with 45.9 seconds remaining when a pushing and shoving between the teams spilled into the stands after fans began throwing things at the players near the scorer's table.

"It's the ugliest thing I've seen as a coach or player," Pistons coach Larry Brown said.

After several minutes of players fighting with fans in the stands, the Pacers were pelted with beer, ice, and popcorn as they made their way to the locker room in one of the scariest brawls in an NBA game.

The Palace announcer said the game was being stopped and pleaded with fans not to throw things.

Yes and I think the Umpires do as well, if the players have left any standing.

I read about this in the paper this morning.  It's a shame really.  These players are getting payed millions to get into catfights.  I personnaly think it's BS.

Is it a proper brawl or just a case of 'pushy-pushy'?
