All you people — including myself — who thought "This could only happen in Flint" when the news broke of an all-out, booze-fueled brawl at Chuck E. Cheese on Miller Road a few weeks ago need to apologize to the Vehicle City. Apparently, Flint isn't the only place where alleged adults take their children out for a night of fun, buy them some pizza and spring for a few game tokens...and then start swinging.
NATICK, Mass. - A child's birthday party at a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant was cut short after a fight broke out between two mothers. Natick police said the mom of the 9-year-old birthday boy apparently became enraged because the other woman's son was "hogging" an arcade game.
Sgt. Paul Thompson said Catherine Aliaga, 38, and Tarsha Williams, 33, both of , would be summoned into court to answer charges of stemming from the scuffle.
Thompson told the MetroWest Daily News that police received a number of 911 calls about the fight Saturday night.
He said what started as a birthday celebration turned into a "birthday melee."
Wait a minute. Just two women were fighting and the Natick PD is calling it a melee? That's known as a quiet night in Flint. Natick may have technically tied us for the Chuck E. Cheese Brawl Capital of the U.S., but the Massachusetts town has a long way to go before it catches up to Flint in the major crimes competition.
