UPDATE: Noon Aug. 26 — The Columbus Police Department has confirmed three juvenile arrests Friday night in connection with the incident at the Carver-Spencer football game.

Two 15-year-olds and one 16-year-old were arrested outside of A.J. McClung Stadium on weapons charges, a Columbus Police spokesperson said. Their names are not being released because of their ages.

Three guns, including one that was reported stolen, were confiscated.

Two of the teenagers were taken into custody when they were seen brandishing the guns, according to the police department.

The incident started with a fight inside the stadium at the end of the third quarter. The fight created a panic that spread outside the stadium. The game was halted and not finished as a result of the incident.

It took Columbus Police less than an hour to clear the stadium, then the parking lot.

There were unsubstantiated reports of shots fired outside the stadium, according to a joint release last night from the CPD and Muscogee County School District.

Columbus Police, Muscogee County Sheriff’s Office, and MCSD Police all responded. There was a heavy police presence until just before 11 p.m.

There were no reported injuries.
