Four Cited After Fight at Community Pool

A fight at a public pool in Ohio led to the citation of two adults and two juveniles after the altercation got out of control.

According to police chief Mike Dickey, two teenagers were asked to leave the Fairfield Aquatic Center because they were not dressed appropriately for the pool.

Authorities say that the teenagers resisted the request and at least one parent got involved with the incident, as well as a few other kids. Witnesses of the fight reported that a park ranger came to the pool, but was kicked and punched when he tried to get control of the situation.

Pepper spray was used to break up the altercation Dickey said, but he would not confirm the reports about the park ranger.

The manager of the Fairfield Aquatic Center said he would not comment on the situation. He explained that since the facility is run by the city, any comments must come from the police chief.
