There was some early morning excitement Sunday in the Denny's in downtown Redlands, in the Inland Empire. During the 2 a.m. rush that follows bar closing, one table of patrons was being kicked out when arguments broke out with another table. Mini-skirted women in the two parties began throwing punches and kicking, and soon a brawl was on. Somebody taped the whole thing, bare asses and all, and posted it on YouTube.
Denny's manager Heather Bruhl filled in Redlands-Loma Linda Patch's Guy McCarthy on what happened.
"The party, it was about four girls and four guys, they were leaving," Bruhl said. "Another party with some other girls at a table, they laughed. And the people leaving said 'Don't laugh at us, you don't know us.'
"The laughing party, one of them said, 'Excuse me, we're not even talking to you,'" Bruhl said. "One of the girls in the laughing party stood up and threw something, then she broke a plate, and it was on. It was a melee, complete chaos."
Bruhl said there was a handicapped man sitting at the counter, and she tried to protect him because the women were fighting so close to him.
"It was crazy," Bruhl said. "Some of the girls fighting were in short skirts and high heels. . . . It looked like a bomb went off in here, broken glass, broken plates. Tables overturned. It took about 30 minutes to clean up."
Police cited some of the brawlers. No serious injuries were reported.
