PACIFICA (CBS SF) — A member of a visiting minor league football team allegedly brandished a gun during a dispute with a rival player after a game at Terra Nova High School in Pacifica on Saturday afternoon, a police sergeant said.

At about 4:43 p.m., police responded to a report that a suspect was brandishing a firearm on the Terra Nova High School football field after a 2 p.m. game between the Pacifica Islanders and the Sacramento-based Capital City Fury, according to Pacifica police Sgt. Dave Barranti.

Officer stopped a black vehicle leaving the scene and detained the car’s two occupants, according to Barranti.

Police arrested one of the occupants, Julius Cesar Douglas, Jr., 25, on suspicion of brandishing a firearm, possession of a firearm on school grounds, and being a felon in possession of a firearm, Barranti said.

Douglas, a Sacramento resident, is a player with the Capital City Fury, according to the team roster.

Douglas allegedly brandished the gun after a confrontation with a player on the Pacifica Islanders, according to police.

Police recovered the weapon, a .38 caliber revolver, and determined that it was stolen. Douglas was also arrested on suspicion of possession of stolen property, according to Barranti.

The second occupant of the vehicle, Kirk Patrick Brown, Jr., a Capital City Fury player, was not involved in the weapon incident, Barranti said.

But police discovered marijuana and arrested Brown, 32, a Sacramento resident, on suspicion of transportation of marijuana, Barranti said.

Both suspects were booked into San Mateo County Jail, police said.
