WHITEVILLE, NC (WWAY) — A fan was tasered by police tonight at Whiteville High School as the Wolfpack took on the South Brunswick Cougars. It’s the second time this year there has been fan misconduct at a Whiteville basketball game.
The fan allegedly pushed police officers after disputing a call made by referees. When the cops told him to back off, the irate fan pushed them again. That’s when police tasered him.
The fan was not a student and it’s not clear at this time whether charges will be filed.
Earlier this year, Whiteville’s game at North Brunswick finished in an empty gym after all fans were ejected after an incident during the game.
