HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) -- The mother of a University of Southern Mississippi quarterback was arrested Saturday at the school's football game after arguing with another fan who berated her son's play.

Lawanda Ann Alford, 38, was booked into Forrest County Jail Saturday for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, the Hattiesburg American reports, after Hattiesburg Police arrested her at M.M. Roberts Stadium.

Alford is freshman quarterback Anthony Alford's mother. The freshman started Saturday's game, but injured his foot in the third quarter, and left with the Golden Eagles trailing 45-17 to Marshall University. USM went on to lose 59-24.

Lawanda Alford was ejected from a Petal High School baseball playoff game in the spring for coming onto the field and yelling at an umpire after her son was ejected for arguing a called third strike.
