According to the Anchorage Daily News, Wednesday's fight broke out after the teen took a position on the bank behind an older man. The teen was asked to move several times by other anglers who believed he was too close, but he stayed put and tangled his line with the 54-year-old fisherman in front of him. When the older man had had enough, he clipped the teen's line and that's when tempers flared. "The 16-year-old became angry and began to argue," Anchorage police spokesman Ron McGee told the Daily News. "The boy punched [BRACKET "the older man"] in the face. He got him into a bear hug, and with his back to the water, the boy pulled the man in."
