MASSIVE Brawl Erupts At Casino Featuring Chairs Thrown And Several Injuries (VIDEOS)
On Friday, it was the grand opening of Fat Tuesday, a New Orleans-style daiquiri bar inside the Resorts World Casino at the Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens, New York.
Well that certainly looks like a fun time! I’d love to indulge in a frozen concoction, maybe a pina colada or a Miami vice.
Fast forward several hours, and this is what Fat Tuesday looked like.

Yeah, I’m just gonna go to my local T.G.I. Friday’s and get a mudslide and some boneless Sriracha wings.
The colossal brawl involving up to 400 people saw the entire casino turned into a battle zone. The massive free-for-all featured several individuals engaged in all-out fights that that erupted around 11 p.m. on Friday. The combatants threw chairs into the crowd and used very dangerous stanchions as weapons.
Grand opening, grand closing.
Well there has to be an understandable and justifiable reason to cause THIS extreme level of violence.
From the NY POST:
The violence was sparked by people angry about the long wait for daiquiris, law-enforcement sources said.
Three people were arrested and there were “a lot of gang members involved,” a police source said. Many casino patrons and security officers suffered minor injuries and one police officer suffered a hand injury.
“The safety of our patrons is Resorts World’s top priority, and there is absolutely no room for this kind of behavior at our facility,” a casino spokesman said in a statement. “We are reviewing all aspects of this unfortunate event and are fully committed to taking steps to ensure similar acts do not take place ever again.”
The narrator/videographer who refuses to film correctly by simply turning his phone, aptly describes the scene of the destruction by saying, “look at the reminiscence.” Look at all the reminiscence indeed.
