The fight broke out Tuesday at the Douglas County Courthouse
Douglas County authorities say the fight involved relatives of a murdered man and the man who had just been sentenced to prison for the crime.
34-year-old Antonio McNichols was sentenced Tuesday morning to 30-35 years for second-degree murder, five years on a weapons charge and 12-15 years on another weapons charge. He was convicted of killing 26-year-old Davarus Neelon in January 2012.
Courthouse officials say Tuesday's dispute broke out while the relatives were in a courthouse elevator. Officers used pepper spray to break up the melee. One person suffered a foot injury, and two people were arrested.
