WARNING: Video contains strong language.
A family night at Chuck E. Cheese’s turned violent when two women started fighting, pulling each other’s hair and throwing fists as children celebrated a birthday nearby, video shows.
The 2-minute video, posted Saturday on Facebook, shows two unidentified women trading blows as stunned children and parents look on. The fight took place at a Chuck E. Cheese’s in Indianapolis, where several people, including employees, unsuccessfully tried to separate the female brawlers.
“Are you serious?” one woman asked after reminding the women where they were at the time.
One employee appears to tell another worker to call police, according to the video. The women later separated but continued shouting at each other in front of dozens of customers, including Cujo Bailey, who recorded the fight and posted it to Facebook. As of Tuesday, the video had been viewed more than 342,000 times.
Bailey said he didn’t intend to capture the fight on camera, but was recording his son at the time as his family celebrated his daughter’s birthday.
“You just see them type of videos all the time now, so it kind of looks like the kind of stuff that you see on Facebook,” he told WISH. “The lady came in yelling at the other lady, and they exchanged some words and the fight took off from there.”
What prompted the fight is unclear, Bailey said.
A spokesperson for Indianapolis police said the women involved in the fight left the location before officers responded to the scene. A police report was not filed.
Calls seeking comment from Chuck E. Cheese’s corporate office were not immediately returned Tuesday.
