Brown County State's Attorney Kimberly Dorsett said she was contacted after the event at Odde Ice Arena by an official at O.M. Tiffany School and other locals who were concerned after the fight night event featured a match between two fifth-graders, the Aberdeen (S.C.) American News reported Wednesday.

Dorsett told the county commission Tuesday that the sheriff's office investigated the complaints and learned from the promoter of the event that it had been officially sanctioned and the children were experienced boxers with protective equipment and paperwork signed by their parents.

The state's attorney said there was nothing illegal or improper about the event, but commissioners had the option of passing an ordinance to govern such fights or ban the promoter.

However, commissioners did not express any desire to interfere.

"It wasn't just two kids picked out of the crowd and thrown in the boxing ring," Commissioner Duane Sutton said.
