NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A massive brawl erupted late Friday night at a casino in Queens.
As CBS2’s Ilana Gold reported, hundreds of people at the World Resorts Casino in Ozone Park saw the fight and began recording it on their cellphones. Now, the video is going viral.
“Didn’t really see much of people calling the cops, you just see people trying to get footage of it,” witness Jermaine Carry told 1010 WINS’ Darius Radzius.
In the video, taken around 10:30 p.m., people are seen hurling chairs across the food court and throwing punches as innocent bystanders try to run out and avoid injury.
Carry told the Associated Press some line-cutting sparked ire as hundreds of people waited to buy daiquiris at a new Fat Tuesday bar. He said then it was “like a wild frat party gone wrong.”
“All I remember was it was chairs flying everywhere, it was chaotic. It was too much going on at one time a lot of people were there, the line was ridiculously long,” witness Elize Brown said.
