The man with the arm sleeves set the screen, _togs tweeted, and the man who is second from right allegedly called the police.
Another Twitter user shot video of the aftermath, and he talked with the police officer, who said he responded because it was a reported fight.
Deadspin reported that the game was at the LA Fitness in Sterling, Va., and identified the person who took the video above as 28-year-old Thomas Mulabah.
Mulabah provided more detail to Deadspin: “He had pushed him in the back before so he got hit with a hard screen at the top of the key and flew to the ground got up and walked out the door lol he went to the front desk and called the cop and waited for them. Then walked back in and sat down.”
