ATLANTIC CITY, NJ – A huge fight involving dozens of individuals, many of them wearing business suits, erupted at an Atlantic City, New Jersey casino resort last week, and the violent encounter – which shows people using their fists, feet, and even chairs to inflict damage – was caught on bystander video.
Reports indicate that the incident unfolded at Harrah’s Resort on Tuesday at approximately 3 a.m. Video taken by onlookers – which did not capture what started the fight – shows numerous people punching, kicking, and knocking each other to the floor of a dining area as hotel security stands by, looking perplexed and overwhelmed by the chaos unfolding before them.
At one point, a man wearing a beige suit jacket is seen wielding a chair as a weapon, striking someone over the head before being knocked down and beaten himself. Several bystanders are seen on video fleeing the area to avoid being pulling into the conflict.
Police responded to the scene of the fight, although they say that the situation had already died down by the time they arrived. At least one person was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at a local area hotel in connection with the brawl, officials say.
Local reports say that Atlantic City was hosting a real estate convention at the time, attracting hundreds of realtors and mortgage lenders. A witness to the incident told media that the fight possibly involved members of several mortgage companies that had been partying throughout the evening, although authorities could not confirm exactly who the participants of the brawl were as of press time.
No arrests were made in connection with the incident, police say, as none of the participants were willing to make criminal complaints.
