Police Called In Kentucky, Louisville Fan Fight Between Elderly At Dialysis Center

GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP/ CBS St. Louis) The bad blood between Kentucky and Louisville fans boiled over this week at a Kentucky dialysis center when one patient couldn’t wait to call a winner.

Georgetown police Lt. Robert Swanigan says Ed Wilson, a Kentucky fan, reportedly flipped off Louisville fan Charles Taylor, who allegedly responded by punching the Wildcat fan in the face.

At the time of the incident, Wilson was hooked up to the dialysis machine while Taylor stood in line for it.

Swanigan says police expected tensions might rise as Kentucky and Louisville prepare to play in Saturday’s Final Four, but they never expected to be called to a dialysis clinic to break up a fight sparked by the rivalry.

He says the Monday spat began with a verbal exchange between the 68-year-old Kentucky fan and 71-year-old Louisville fan over who will win the game.

Swanigan says the Kentucky fan was receiving treatment during the spat.

He says the Kentucky fan is not filing charges.
