Huge brawl breaks out at Chuck E. Cheese — yet again

What started as two children fighting over tickets at a Fort Myers, Florida, Chuck E. Cheese on Saturday evening turned into an all-out brawl between their two families.

"The two family members just got into a big brawl. All of the family members were hitting each other," a mother of two your children, identified only as Ashley, said of the fight she witnessed.

Ashley told NBC 2 that about 10 to 15 members of each family joined the fray, throwing "anything that wasn't bolted to the floor" in the fight.

"Food was flying and drinks then she took the metal thing off the table and threw it," she recalled, adding that one of the family members pulled out pepper spray, affecting everyone inside the restaurant.

"I was just thinking a gun was going to come out next. Thankfully it didn't," she said.

Most of the people involved in the fight left before Fort Myers Police arrived. No arrests were made, and the restaurant kicked out anyone involved.

Chuck E. Cheese released the following statement in response to the fight:

"We are deeply saddened that individuals would choose to behave in this manner in front of children and families. We take altercations in our stores very seriously and have spent more than $15 million to date on measures to help ensure the safety of our guests. As an environment dedicated to serving young children and families, Chuck E. Cheese's will not tolerate violence of any kind in our stores."

Apparently the Chuck E. Cheese brawl is the new bar fight.

In October, a man and a woman were arrested at a Chicago Chuck E. Cheese after more than 30 people starting fighting while waiting in line for prizes. Three adults suffered minor injuries.

And in July, two women were arrested at a Brookfield, Wisconsin, Chuck E. Cheese following a 20-plus person fight that, again, started when a parents waiting in line "became restless." And, just like in the Fort Myers incident, someone used pepper spray.
