In what sounds like a scene out of Game of Thrones (think: Dothraki wedding celebrations), two wedding parties in the Sheraton on Society Hill in Philadelphia got into it. And by it, I mean they really got into it. Perhaps you thought the Cardinals-Braves wildcard game on Friday night was bad. The wedding brawl—also allegedly fueled by alcohol– was so bad that it made its way through the lobby, and out into the street. Dozens of people were involved.
No one is quite certain what started the brawl (except for the fact that two wedding receptions were going on at the same time and place on a Saturday night, likely with open bars, and my bet is that we’ve ALL been to at least one wedding like that), but what we do know is the police were called, three people were arrested, one person had to be subdued with a taser, a guest of one of the weddings had a fatal heart attack, and people are reporting one of the brides got decked in the process.
In fact, the police had to call in a third assist—which means that anyone available in the area should respond to the call. Oh, and there were eyewitnesses. Plenty of eyewitnesses. And of course, someone with a phone who recorded the whole thing and posted it to YouTube for our viewing pleasure.
