LAKEWOOD, Colo. — Parents brawled at a children’s baseball game in Colorado, during a wild free-for-all captured on video, authorities said Wednesday.

Five men were cited for disorderly conduct and fighting in public after Saturday’s melee on the field at Westgate Elementary School, and police are asking for the public’s help to identify more of those involved.

“It’s one of those things people like to gawk at, they like to `Oh my gosh, I can’t believe that happened.’ But it’s serious. People were seriously hurt in this,” Lakewood police spokesman John Romero told NBC News on Wednesday.
