Emotions were running high at a youth basketball tournament in Storm Lake this weekend. Police were called after opposing coaches and fans started shouting profanities at one another and needed to be separated.
Officers were told that coaches from Sioux City and Le Mars were creating the trouble. Storm Lake Police seized video of the incident and arrested three men. Thirty-nine-year-old Trent Gosch and 33-year-old Richard Semple, both of Sioux City, and 62-year-old Steven Stratmeir of Le Mars are all charged with disorderly conduct.
No injuries were reported and police stayed at the gym for the remainder of the youth basketball tournament.
