Next tonight here, the new headline after that high school hazing scandal making national headlines. The head coach and four staff members in sayreville, new Jersey, suspended indefinitely. The season canceled. Seven players accused of sex yully assaulting and hazing younger teammates. In the west tonight, it's not the young players, but the parents now in hot water. Here's ABC's Neal Karlinsky with the pictures. Reporter: Football at its most innocent. 9 and 10-year-olds near Seattle in a junior league match-up. But watch the edge of the field in this video, given to us by police. Parents from opposite sides begin to argue, then a full on brawl breaks out. The stands begin to clear as parents from both sides come rushing in. Just total chaos at that point. Reporter: Amazingly, while the parents are fighting, a child is lying on the field with a broken arm. It is the ugly side of children's sports. Overly aggressive parents across the country behaving badly. A father shoving a boy during a wrestling match. This mom yelling at a ref during a hockey game. A screaming match during basketball. To head all this off, they have silent Saturdays. Rules to keep parents quiet so the kids can play in peace. In Seattle, two parents face assault charges and both teams are now losers, as well. Kicked out of the championship playoffs because of their parents. Neal Karlinsky, ABC news, Seattle.
