Webster said most of the people at the hotel Saturday night complied with officers' orders.
Brian Watson, 28, of Wheeling was holding a mixed drink and screaming and cursing at other guests. He continued on after officers told him to stop and resisted when they attempted to arrest him.
His father, West Liberty Athletic Director James Watson, intervened and allegedly shoved an officer who was trying to arrest his son, according to a criminal complaint.
Both men were arrested. The elder Watson was charged with battery on a police officer and obstruction, while his son was charged with fleeing, public intoxication and disorderly conduct.
Tyler Tucci, a 22-year-old football player, and Gabrielle Davis, a 19-year-old Volleyball player, also were arrested and charged with obstruction. Tucci was pepper-sprayed and Davis allegedly tried to intervene in Tucci's arrest, police said.
"What you hope would have happened is that anyone interested would have said 'Hey, we're going to come to the police station' or 'Hey, we're going to meet you at court,' " Webster said. "But any physical touching of the officers is positively a bad idea. You can't interfere in an arrest, ever. People just were not using good judgment."
Webster said he believed alcohol played a major factor in the incident. Lt. Steve Cooper, chief of detectives, said there was no video of the incident.
Jones said he was glad to have the tournament in town and hoped it would return next year.
"We want people to come to Charleston and enjoy themselves," Jones said. "Yet we also hope that all people will conduct themselves appropriately. From what I learned about the situation, I believe our officers did respond appropriately to this call for help."
West Liberty President Robin Capeheart was not available for comment Monday.
