Two London fathers watching their daughters play soccer Sunday in Waterloo got into an argument that escalated to the point one was punched several times in the face, sending him to hospital.
The other man is charged with assault causing bodily harm after the incident that occurred during a noon-hour game at RIM Park.
"Two parents got into an argument -- as we understand it, there was some dispute in a previous game over their two daughters -- and the argument escalated and fists started flying. One male was punched repeatedly," Waterloo Regional Police spokesman Olaf Heinzel said Monday.
"It's not setting a very good example for their daughters at any time," he said. "It's possible these two fathers became excited about their daughters' involvement in soccer."
