Wedding brawl takes Jersey cops 45 minutes to clear out

MIDDLETOWN TOWNSHIP, N.J. — Authorities say 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 hours when the fight started Sunday night. It apparently began inside the reception hall and spilled out on to the street. It’s not clear what sparked the brawl.

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

Order was eventually restored, but authorities shut down the reception and told the guests to leave. It took about 45 minutes to clear out the facility.

No injuries were reported, but a man and a woman were charged with disorderly conduct. An investigation is ongoing.
