Police were trying to clear out the Jackson-Olin High School stadium after the Minors had walloped the Mustangs by a score of 27-0 when they noticed both school bands were still playing, the Birmingham Police Department said.

The home team gladly left after cops asked them to stop playing, but Mims allegedly ordered his students to continue jamming.

Police repeatedly asked Mims to stop so students and ticketholders would leave the stadium, but the requests fell on deaf ears.

“During the officers’ interaction with Minor’s band director, the decision was made to place him in custody,” the department said.

“The arresting officer then subdued the band director with a Taser which ended the physical confrontation,” police said in a statement.

Mims was taken to a hospital for treatment, which police said is protocol, but was released and taken to a Birmingham jail.

He has since been released on bond.
