What started as a scuffle between a few men boiled over into a more than 100-person fistfight at an English establishment.
Wetherspoon Pub, located in Trowbridge, hosted an unprompted melee caught on camera by Tommy Arkle, one of the bar’s patrons. Dozens of punches, kicks and physical exchanges were filmed by Arkle, who later told England’s The Mirror “There was a group of lads, who had obviously had a bit to drink. It started as two people on one and then suddenly escalated into almost everyone in the bar.”
It was later reported that a police officer suffered a head injury after being hit in the head by one of the brawlers. Witnesses say both men and women were involved in the fight.
Sadly, videos like this get all the play on social media.
