A fight breaks out at a little league game, and it's all caught on camera.

In a video you will only see on News 9, a parent screams from the stands "what the H***? What the H***? You get off my kid!"

During a championship game held by the Edmond YMCA on Saturday, one player tackles a quarterback, then the two players get into a scuffle. Moments later, a coach rushes the field, plows into the head official and takes hold of the opposing team's athlete.

The YMCA said the coach's behavior is prohibited in the league. All coaches must clear a background check, and YMCA officials told News 9 the coach in question passed.

"We also ask them to adhere to a coaches' creed as well, that says they will be a good role model and set a good example for the kids," said Mike Roark, Edmond YMCA Executive Director.

The YMCA officials removed the coach from the game and the director said he will not be allowed to coach in the future.

Edmond police are investigating complaints against the coach in question, but no arrests have been made.
