SPOKANE, Wash. (CBSLA.com) — At least two University of Southern California men’s basketball players were involved in a pair of bar fights over the weekend following a game in Spokane, Washington, witnesses said.
The fights allegedly occurred in downtown Spokane on Saturday night following USC’s 76-51 loss to the Washington State Cougars.
The first fight of the night allegedly started at MarQuee Lounge earlier in the evening, according to local CBS affiliate KREM.
Several officers later responded to a second fight that started after closing time outside of The Wave bar.
“It was a large fight. Witnesses said it was probably 20 people,” Spokane Police Department spokeswoman Monique Cotton told KNX 1070. “Witnesses did report that they thought it was USC player involvement.”
