Police in the small Utah town of Roosevelt pepper sprayed a group of Polynesian men and boys performing a traditional Haka dance after a high school football game!
The dance group was in town to watch a relative play his final game with the home team, who lost and finished their season without a single win.
The Haka was reportedly performed to boost the morale as the team left the field, but cops were pissed because the dancers were blocking an exit.
When the dancers continued to perform despite orders from two officers to move away from the exit, the cops decided the next course of appropriate action was to punish them all with pepper spray!
This came AFTER spectators, coaches and players told police that everything was fine and the men could continue.
"I've never seen anything like it. It was totally unprovoked."
Even worse, some spectators watching the men dance received some of the pepper spray in their ears, eyes and mouth!
Ugh! Such unnecessary brutality!
Local officials are investigating, while residents with complaints are urged to contact the police department.
