Crazy SuperAmerica brawl caught on camera
Scenes from the ruckus.
:::: UPDATE :::: Here's the police report about that crazy SuperAmerica ruckus
A wild and woolly brawl at the SuperAmerica on Lyndale at 22nd Street in south Minneapolis was filmed by a bystander. The footage was later published on Facebook.
The seven-minute melee involves fisticuffs, a fire extinguisher, broken car windows, threats of gun violence, and exactly zero cops.
The person who later posted the clip to Facebook wrote that the incident occurred about 3 a.m. on the morning of July 1.
Here's the video:
Minneapolis Police Department spokesman John Elder tells us to his knowledge there's no record of cops being called to the scene, though he acknowledged his efforts to get us information yesterday was hampered by all the work the MPD is doing surrounding the MLB All-Star Game.
A manager at the SuperAmerica store passed our inquiry to his district manager, who hasn't gotten back to us as this is published. (Neither has the man who shot the video.)
