State Trooper Assaulted, Has to Pull Gun to Break Up Fight Between Midget Football Cheerleaders

First off, no, these are not cheerleaders for football played by little people, or cheerleaders who are themselves little people. Midget football refers to leagues of kids who are typically pre-high school age. Now, on to the important stuff.

It all happened last Sunday in North Middleton Township (PA) where an off-duty state trooper saw a fight occur between two cheerleaders during a kid’s football game and tried to break it up. According to witnesses, he identified himself as a police officer and tried to take one of the girls into custody, but she refused to stop fighting. Bad move. At that point, the girl’s uncle, 29-year-old Damien Jones (mug shot at right), attacked the trooper and threw him to the ground.

It was then that the trooper, identified as Scott Roussell, had to pull his gun out to restore order to the situation and arrested Jones on aggravated assault, simple assault, harassment and disorderly conduct charges.

Think about that: the guy had to pull a gun on a fan at a youth football game to break up a cheerleader fight. The real question is: who won the game?
