Charity Toy Drive Erupts into Frat Fight
Frat members threw punches, chairs and even trash cans. At one point, a man picks up a table and throws it down on people below him.
The hotel ballroom was at capacity, and people were waiting outside to get in. Inside, for about a half hour, it was a sea of bodies pushing, shoving and punching, KTLA reports. Some frat members took off their dress shirts to join the fight, and others had their formal attire ripped off in the chaos.
Witnesses said it was a frightening experience, with people running through the halls, screaming and banging on doors, the Daily Breeze reports. The frenzy, one witness said, was fueled by a combination of liquor, testosterone and girls.
The brawl took place at the 16th annual Kappa Khristmas Jam & Toy Drive at the LAX Radisson, organized by the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity at Cal State Long Beach.
