On Sunday, Saugerties Police arrested a 73-year-old man and a 49-year-old man for fighting while watching a youth football game at an elementary school.
Police say their investigation determined that 49-year-old Stephan R. Williams of Accord and 73-year-old William A. Harris of Ellenville engaged in a physical altercation during a children’s football game at the Mount Marion Elementary School.
Both were charged with disorderly conduct. Authorities didn’t say what the fight was about.

Both were released on police appearance tickets. They are scheduled to appear in the Town of Saugerties Justice Court on Oct. 12.
This is another in a series of wild or unusual stories from the Saugerties area. Last week, police arrested an alleged drunk man after he got lost in a strangers back yard. Prior to that, 30 were arrested for illegally cooling off, a man pushed an A.C. out of a window and injured a child, Mariah Carey’s sister was arrested for alleged prostitution and a woman was accused ofthrowing dog poop in a man’s face. All these bizarre stories happened in about the last month, in Saugerties.
