Police Body-Cam Footage Released From The Aftermath Of The Pickup Game Hard Foul

A truly historic moment in pickup basketball history took place this week when a couple of guys got into it at a local LA Fitness over a hard foul. A foul that was so flagrant, apparently, that a police presence was needed at the gym to sort this situation out.

Up until today, all the details we had from this ridiculous story were a couple of pictures and videos featuring camo sleeves guy (the perp in this case) talking to police and LA Fitness staff after the hard foul was committed. Also, a few guys chimed in on Twitter to let everyone know who the fouler and the foulee were, not that it matters because everyone looks soft as baby shit here.
But now we have the bodycam footage from the cop who talked to these morons and we can really get an inside glimpse at what caused landmark moment.

The two sides of it are just a pretty basic pickup basketball argument. Somebody says a foul went overboard and the guy responding with “that’s just basketball”. Seen that a million times. The real new information here is the fact these guys actually know each and have FOR YEARS.
So these guys have been familiar with each for a while, they’ve almost assuredly hooped together at one time or another before this, and they still need the police to come settle this argument. What happened to just a good ole fashioned fist fight? Settle things like men. Welcome to 2018.
