A fifth-grade basketball tournament being held at the YMCA in Helena was canceled after police were called to break up a fight involving adults.

Police Chief Troy McGee says his understanding is that a coach disagreed with an official during a game on Thursday and the scorekeeper got involved, followed by numerous spectators.

The Independent Record reports the scorekeeper, Tanya Brancamp, was cited for misdemeanor assault. McGee says more people could be cited.

As a result, the YMCA canceled the rest of the tournament, which was to run through Saturday afternoon.

Helena YMCA CEO David Smith says it was a difficult decision, but notes that when a parent signs their child up for youth sports, they agree to a 12-point code of conduct. He said violence and poor sportsmanship cannot be tolerated.
