VIDEO: Utah Cop Pepper-Sprays Fans at High School Game

Roosevelt (Utah) Police officers used pepper spray on fans and players at a high school football game to break up a post-game celebration.

The game took place Thursday night in Roosevelt on the Union High Cougars' home turf. It was the final game of the season for two winless teams—Uintah High and Union High. The schools are 30 miles apart and are longtime rivals.

Union lost the game, and as the players left the field a group of Polynesian fans tried to boost the team's morale by performing the Haka, a fierce traditional war chant often performed at football and rugby games around the state.

A group of 15 men and boys blocked the exit to the field, and officers asked them to move.
