POLICE INTERCEPT FIGHT CLUB, OVER THIRTY IMPRISONED

On the 14th of January, in the earlier hours of the morning, the Los Santos Police Department were tipped off of a gathering which would result subsequently in the dealing of illegal materials and organised mutual combat. LSPD detectives tracked down and surveyed what was to be a meeting between dozens of persons for illegal purposes including heavy firearms trafficking in San Fierro Airport, directly underneath in the spacious car parking facility. The gathering, dubbed a 'fight club' is, as it's namesake suggests, an underground fighting club for the purpose of gambling.

Once the alarm was raised, both patrol and SWAT officers, and a handful of sheriff's deputies were dispatched, along with heavily armoured vehicles to withstand any attacks made. The main aim of the covert operation which was to take place, plotted by scene and operations commander Michael Houston and SWAT operations commander Andre Mitchell, was to kettle the group from either sides as they were trapped inside of the underground parking facility, whilst at the same time aiming to keep the amount of fatalities at the lowest possible minimum. Once in operation, those who resisted and made the choice to open fire on officers were swiftly incapacitated. The vast majority who were unarmed, all being directly involved in the 'fight club', were all detained and arrested by officers on scene swiftly and were later transported to the Los Santos Prison from San Fierro via the Department's prison buses in a secure convoy. A total of more than thirty arrestees were transported that morning.

Officers on scene, though outnumbered three to one, did not receive any injuries.
