According to Gainesville Police Department reports, Tygh Landon Bailes, 35, of 3303 SW 62nd Lane, and Alexander Gerald Vickers, 25, of Lakeland, were booked into the Alachua County jail within hours of the fight. Bailes was charged with felony battery, and Vickers was charged with simple battery, which is a misdemeanor.The fight came as the University of Florida lost to Florida State, 21-7. GPD spokeswoman Cpl. Angelina Valuri said Bailes, a UF fan, was angry at the outcome of the game. She said Vickers is an FSU fan. In the arrest reports, Officer Farrah Lormil wrote that the fight broke out when Bailes fell back into an elevator after being pushed in the chest by Vickers.“This action caused numerous participants to become involved in a fight, with several people trying to break it up,” Lormil wrote.According to witnesses and the video, Bailes went over to McGee, who had fallen to his knees after being punched by several other people, and Bailes kicked McGee in his head. Lormil wrote that McGee fell to the floor bleeding from several cuts to his face and with a possibly broken nose.
