SALISBURY, Md. -- Two New Jersey dads got themselves arrested for brawling at a fast-pitch softball tournament in Maryland.

Police say the two fathers have a history of bad blood over girls' softball and have fought before.

On this particular day, one of the fathers texted the other, challenging him to a fight in the parking lot. Police believe the
fight started because one of their daughters got kicked off the traveling team.

A witness captured the fight on his cell phone.

"I just saw two Caucasian males going at it so I went over there and recorded it. I didn't think he was going to go for it,"
said Karon Washington.

Both men were charged with second-degree assault.
