Transcript for Coaches, parents throw punches at youth football game
We're back with that brawl on the football field. Parents and coaches caught on camera throwing punches. Amy is here with more and we see this in front of the children. It's so hard to watch and one parent actually said some kids were crying watching this all happen. These are adults. They're supposed to be looking up to and sadly this is not the first time this has happened at a youth sporting event. The postgame handshake is supposed to Keach good sportsmanship but these coaches from two rival pee wee football teams did the opposite throwing punches in a wild on-field fight in Virginia.

No charges will be filed but it's important to remember everybody has a cell phone camera and public shaming might be just as effective as charges. It is a game and they are kids. It's crazy. Heat of the battle? There was no battle. In a pee wee football game. It was good to see how many were trying to stop -- were stepping in and trying to stop it. Not all were involved.
