CRANSTON, R.I. (WPRI) — Cranston police said they arrested three men following a fight between spectators at a boxing match Saturday night.
Officers responded to a “large disturbance” at the Park Theatre just after 9:30 p.m. A 12 News crew on scene saw over a dozen police cruisers.
Col. Michael Winquist said there were about 10 people involved, with some of the fighting spilling out into the street.
The fight started between cousins 28-year-old Braxton Gulley-Mabry, of Boston and 27-year-old Brandon Gulley, of Mattapan, Massachusetts, according to Winquist, calling it “an old family dispute.”
Brandon’s younger brother, 23-year-old Bryson Gulley, jumped in soon after and began assaulting Braxton, Winquist said.
All three family members were arrested.
Braxton is facing domestic disorderly conduct and resisting legal or illegal arrest charges.
Brandon was arrested on domestic simple assault and resisting legal or illegal arrest.
Bryson is facing simple assault and resisting legal or illegal arrest charges.
Winquist added that one officer suffered minor injuries when he was elbowed in the face while trying to break up the fight. He didn’t need treatment for his injuries.
Cranston police said mutual aid was requested from Providence and additional arrests relating to the incident are possible.
