UNIVERSITY CENTER, Mich. (AP) — Officials say a brawl involving referees and spectators during a weekend youth wrestling meet in Michigan led to one arrest.

MLive.com reports (http://bit.ly/14eil06 ) it happened Sunday at Saginaw Valley State University during a finals tournament for the Mid-Michigan Wrestling Association. School officials say one man was arrested for disorderly conduct. The man's name wasn't released.

Association referee Eric Polidan says the man was standing next to the mat cheering, wouldn't sit in the stands and started swearing. Polidan says the man was told to leave the building, and the man pushed another referee before being subdued.

The event was at the Ryder Center at the school, about 85 miles northwest of Detroit. The association offers competitive wrestling for children ages 5 to 14.
