Fighting is a common part of hockey. Usually, the fists fly for a little while and then everything dies down. But during Turkey's Ice Hockey Super League game between the Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality Sports Club and the Ezurum Youth Sports Club, things didn't settle down until the riot police were called in.
Halfway into the second period, a scuffle between players on both teams started up, which is nothing new. Then the fighting went from bad to worse when the benches cleared, goalies got involved and a female fan stepped onto the ice. The riot police showed up and when things were restored to normal, the rest of the match was called off. And you know things got a little too out of hand when one player had to be dragged back to the bench (1:38 mark) because he was beaten up so badly.
