BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (WCCO) — Seven people were arrested and five were treated for injuries after a fight broke out at a TGI Fridays in Bloomington, Minn.
Deputy Chief Rick Hart said they got a call around 1 a.m. about a fight at the TGI Fridays on 2201 Killebrew Drive.
The 911 call stated there were as many as 30 people fighting inside the restaurant. When officers arrived, they found a few people still fighting inside and outside the building.
Seven people were arrested for third-degree riot and five people were treated and released from a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. No officers were injured in the incident.
Hart said they believe the fighting started when two groups of people, sitting next to each other, got into a verbal argument and it escalated from there.
Hart said people began throwing menus, glasses, plates and silverware at each other.
The restaurant estimates it has about $1,500 in damages.
