Wedding Reception Shut Down When Brawl Breaks Out

Posted: Updated:
Two people were arrested when a brawl involving dozens of guests broke out at a wedding reception in central New Jersey.

Middletown Township police say the party had been going on for several hours at Jacques Banquet Hall when the fight started Sunday night. It apparently began inside the hall and spilled onto the street.

Officers found several guests who were shoving each other and shouting, so assistance was sought from several nearby police departments.

Order was eventually restored, but authorities shut down the reception and told the 300 guests to leave. It took about 45 minutes to clear the facility.
It's not clear what sparked the brawl

No injuries were reported, but a man and a woman were charged with disorderly conduct.
The venue was closed Monday. Police said they had never had a problem with the banquet hall.
