GREELEY, Colo. — A couple from Greeley is facing charges including disorderly conduct after police say they started a fight at a little league baseball game Tuesday night.

According to Greeley police Sgt. Jim Roybal, the brawl ensued at about 9:20 p.m. at the Greeley Youth Sports Complex on 65th Avenue and 20th Street, after the father of a 10-year-old ball player claimed the opposing coach made a comment about his son.

James Dyer reportedly went up to the chain link fence near the opposing team’s dugout and starting yelling profanities at the team and their coach.

Jammie Dyer, James’ wife, then grabbed a cell phone out of a woman’s hand who was trying to video tape the fight, and parents started pushing and shoving each other.

When the altercation escalated, Jammie punched two women and one male in the head.

James Dyer has been charged with disorderly conduct, and Jamie was charged with two counts of misdemeanor assault, disorderly conduct and theft.

There were no serious injuries reported. The Greeley Evans Youth League is investigating the incident.
