NEW YORK, NY – An enormous brawl broke out at the opening of a daiquiri bar in New York City on Fat Tuesday. The food court at Aqueduct track’s Resorts World Casino saw a huge gathering of people fighting with one another, ending with three arrested or ticketed.
“It was chairs flying everywhere – it was chaotic,” witness Elize Brown told CBS New York station WCBS-TV. She said the mayhem erupted amid long lines and crowds at the bar. “It was nerve-wracking. It was like you don’t know what the next thing that was going to happen was.”
Around two dozen people were reportedly involved in the fight, at what is known as the most successful racetrack casino in the world.
