The stands were packed Friday night at Lanier High School as the boys basketball team took on Jeff Davis High School.  Two minutes into the game, a scuffle broke out in the stands.

WSFA 12 Sports Anchor Derek Steyer was at the game and caught three girls being escorted out of the building--on camera.

According to Montgomery Police Spokesman Huey Thornton there was never a physical fight between any of the girls involved in the incident.

The department says police officers asked the girls to leave the stands, but they refused and starting using profanity.

One of those suspects has been identified as 18-year-old Natasha Stevenson.

She and an unidentified 16-year-old girl were arguing with a third female at the time of the incident.

After Stevenson ignored repeated requests by officers to leave she was physically removed from the premises.

As the video shows, officers forced her to the ground and placed her in handcuffs.

Stevenson and the 16-year-old was both charged with Disorderly Conduct.

The minor was taken to the Montgomery County Youth Facility and Stevenson was taken to the City Jail.
