More than 40 people are believed to have been involved in a brawl at a Golden Corral in Bucks County on Friday, according to reports.
Police were called to the Bensalem Golden Corral Buffet & Grill restaurant in the 1400 block of Street Road around 4:30 p.m., Bensalem Director of Public Safety William McVey told the Courier Times.
The clash was caught on video, seemingly between two groups within the restaurant, in front of an area where “gather around” was written on the wall.
Although the clip starts with a large group of people standing and looking just out of frame, it quickly escalates until people can be seen throwing chairs and knocking over tables in the ruckus.
Golden Corral employees and others were trying to keep the groups separate, and eventually, they left the room in opposite directions.
McVey told the Courier Times that authorities didn’t know how many people were involved in the fight, but believe it was more than 40. He also said that police had seen the video, but no arrests had been made as of Monday.
The restaurant, a franchise location, was heavily damaged in the fight, the Philly Voice reports.
The outlet received an emailed statement from the franchise, JK Hospitality, LLC:
“We are aware of an unfortunate disturbance that started between two parties of guests at our franchise restaurant in Bensalem. We notified the local authorities, and they are investigating the incident. Thankfully, no serious injuries have been reported. The safety of our guests and co-workers is our top priority.”
The restaurant reopened on Sunday but was closed Monday in accordance with its normal schedule, the Courier Times reported.
