Just Like Their Southern Neighbors, Canadians Also Engage In Wild, Videotaped Restaurant Melees

Proving that not all chair-throwing, plate-breaking, glass-smashing restaurant brawls occur in the United States, a wild New Year’s Eve melee at a Canadian eatery was filmed--and, of course, uploaded to YouTube--by a Montreal patron.

It is unclear what prompted the wild fight filmed by Shawn Turnbull, who titled his above video “Chinese vs Blacks.” The ruckus, which occurred at New Dynasty, a Chinese restaurant in downtown Montreal, apparently resulted in significant damage to the business.

A Montreal Police Service spokesperson told TSG she was unaware of the video, but would seek to determine whether cops were called to the scene of the melee.

In an e-mail, Turnbull told TSG that Montreal cops and paramedics arrived after the fight and “two black guys were getting their wounds treated while Police were kind of asking around. I dont think arrests were made that night because the Asians fled the scene before police arrived.”
