Pizza and punches: Parents brawl at Florida Chuck E. Cheese's

Posted at 11:25 AM, Oct 04, 2016

A Miami Chuck E. Cheese's restaurant was the site of a free-for-all brawl over the weekend after a confrontation between parents got violent.

Video from the incidents shows dozens of parents punching, shoving and tackling each other amid arcade games and booths.

According to WSVN-TV in Miami, a Chuck E. Cheese's spokesperson says the fight began when an “argument between two guests escalated into a physical altercation.” According to the Miami Herald, eyewitnesses say the fight began “because one person was looking at them and instigating a problem then they went up to them and their families got involved.”

No arrests were reported, and eye witness reports indicate that there were some injuries.

This marks at least the second major fight to break out at a Chuck E. Cheese's this year. In March, two people were arrested at a Pittsburgh-area Chuck E. Cheese's for instigation and public intoxication.
