One woman ended up with a broken nose after parents from Langley and Vernon fought in the stands at a kids hockey game in Osoyoos, RCMP said.

Osoyoos RCMP were called to a brawl in the stands at the Sun Bowl Arena on April 2. The game involved 10-year-old kids the New Western Bruins out of Langley and the BC Interior Stars out of Vernon, Kelowna West Kelowna, Summerland and Penticton.

The game had just ended when the parents started fighting, police said.

An RCMP investigation revealed the parents were staying at a local resort where they were consuming liquor throughout the day prior to attending the game. The parents were consuming so much liquor, police said, the resort had to call in extra security.

Police said both sides were yelling insults at one another prior to the fight, however “alcohol is believed to have played a large factor in the very poor choices made by these parents,” Cpl. Jason Bayda of the Osoyoos RCMP said in a press release.

The fight resulted in minor injuries and a woman suffering a broken nose.

“It is unfortunate that these young children had to witness their parents act in such an immature way,” Bayda said.
