OXNARD -- Oxnard Police increased security for Wednesday’s practice between the Raiders and Dallas Cowboys, bringing 60 officers – a third more than a day before -- to watch over proceedings.
Officers were stacked near the Raiders sideline, where a fan got involved in a player brawl on Tuesday afternoon.
Sgt. Dan Schrubb said the fan who swung a souvenir helmet at Dallas cornerback B.W. Webb could not be identified from video tape.
Schrubb also said that no arrests were made during an emotionally-charged Tuesday joint practice.
A few patrons were kicked out of the practice, but the event remained peaceful despite rival factions of fans.
There was some concern prior to the practices because a pair of local gangs that wear Raiders and Cowboys gear are rivals.
Schrubb said that never became an issue.
“Generally speaking, it was a family event and everyone seemed to have a good time,” Schrubb said. “It was a great even with passion on both sides. We were happy to see that.”
