If you missed out on the fireworks over the Fourth of July weekend, you can see sparks fly in this video of one New York Walmart where a brawl of mass proportions broke out.
Over the holiday break, last-minute shopping turned into physical when a 30-person fistfight broke out right inside the doors of a Walmart in Rochester. The brawl included flying trashcans and cans of food. Baseball bats also came into the picture when, according to Police Chief Jim VanBrederode, the melee escalated and brawlers went to the sporting goods section to find items with which to fight.
The altercation arose when a few teenagers started making fun of one woman’s dress and began taking pictures of the outfit on their iPhones. When the woman’s family members saw what was going on, the fight then broke out. Before long, the scuffle grew into an all out Walmart war.
And the ruckus wasn’t just with the teens — it included the adults, too.
“The adults jumped right in with the kids, and this is what it turned into,” VanBrederode said. “[I]t’s gotta start somewhere with parents, who brought these kids into the world. People have no respect for other people and these situations are becoming much more common here in Monroe County.”
One of the offenders was 17-year-old Nykia Brooks, who allegedly split one 52-year-old man’s head open with a can of food. She — along with three others — was arrested and charged with second-degree assault, which is a felony, along with two other violations. The video can be watched below:
