You ever heard of Popeyes? You know that fried chicken place that competes with KFC. Well, things turned ugly at a Westgate Mall in Brockton, Massachusetts on Tuesday when a brawl that started in a nearby shoe store spilled into the restaurant. Punches, chairs and even jars of rice were thrown. One nose was broken, four people were arrested. From Enterprise News:
Joshua Taylor, 22, of 121 Walnut St., will be charged with affray, two counts of felony malicious damage and intimidation of a witness.
Police say Taylor threatened to kill a witness who pointed him out to police, and later kicked in the door panel on the cruiser and bent one of the bars on the cruiser window.
Taylor was too “out-of-control” to be booked immediately Tuesday night, police said.
Somebody was real drunk at a Toronto McDonald’s recently. A woman was pushed or hit and then a really sloppy, slow fight broke out that featured a shirtless man stumbling around for a few minutes getting pushed and punched before finally explaining that he was in law school. You can tell its the holidays because the one guy makes sure to adjust his Santa Claus hat between the times he puts his hands on the shirtless man’s throat.
Hector “Macho” Camacho’s funeral was a huge affair that featured “several fights.” According to ESPN.com, two women claiming to be his girlfriends brawled. Cynthia Castillo claimed to be his girlfriend at the time of his death while Gloria Fernández claimed to have been the boxer’s girlfriend for the last 25 years.
“I went to get something to eat because Machito (Hector Camacho Jr.) told me to, and his ex-girlfriend (Fernandez) came up to me and told me that I had to leave,” Castillo told ESPN Deportes, showing a fresh scratch across her clavicle. “I said no, so they threw my plate of food and attacked me, and I defended myself.”
There was also pushing and shoving between former bantamweight champ Wilfredo Vazquez and Jorge Lozada, who said he’s a member of the Camacho family, after Lozada allegedly tried to separate Vazquez’s wife and Camacho’s mother, Maria Matias, as the two embraced.
With the NHL still in the midst of a lockout, hockey fans have been left to watch European Youth Hockey games to get their fix. Now I’m not saying that kids should fight, but the players can hardly stand on their feet, let alone throw puches will standing on the ice. Its funny. I know people want to take out fighting in hockey, but come on.
