CORNWALL, Ontario - Cornwall police said Friday they are still investigating a brawl involving Cornwall River Kings fans last weekend and laying charges has not been ruled out.

Const. Dan Cloutier told Seaway News Friday afternoon police are continuing to interview witnesses and gather information following a fracas that spilled into the stands and involved fans sitting behind the Jonquiere bench at the Ed Lumley Arena last weekend.

Security at the arena was bolstered by Cornwall police officers late in a game won 4-2 by the River Kings, when debris came flying from the seating area, prompting a couple of Jonquiere players to gather against the glass partition behind the bench and reach into the stands.

Jonquiere player Alex Penner and head coach Dean Lygitsakos both sustained minor injuries.

Cornwall police, at the expense of the River Kings, will now be in attendance at Game 6 of the series at the Ed Lumley Arena.

The series is tied 2-2 with Game 5 tonight in Jonquiere.
