Blotter: Disturbance causes ballgame to come to stop

A children’s ballgame in the 200 block of West Windsor Drive was stopped after an argument got out of hand Thursday night, according to Denton police.

Police said a father attending his son’s baseball game started a loud argument with his ex-wife. The game, according to reports, had to be stopped due to the disturbance.

Records show several coaches confronted the suspect to make him leave the ball field. As the suspect was leaving, several witnesses overheard him threatening his ex-wife’s boyfriend, police said. According to reports, the suspect yelled about putting a “bullet in his head,” referring to the ex-wife’s boyfriend.

Officer Ryan Grelle, spokesman for Denton police, said the incident is under investigation and no arrests have been made.
