Man or mouse? The Brawlers probably found out pretty quickly Wednesday when a massive fight broke out at a hotel in California near Disneyland.
As many as 100 people let their fists fly, resulting in at least two people being hospitalized and two arrested according to authorities.
Police responded shortly after 12:30 local time at the Cambria Hotel & Suites in Anaheim, where they immediately saw about 40 people fighting outside and another 50-60 fighting inside. Authorities described the scene as a “pandemonium.”
“It was men and women, adults and youth,” Anaheim police Sgt. Shane Carringer told the Orange County Register. “It sounds like people had brooms and what objects they could find in the hotel.”

Dozens of officials from several departments were called to the scene due to the size of the riot and the hotel was placed on lockdown while deciding if anyone needed additional medical help, reports said. The lock was closed around kl. 15
At least two victims were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, while a man and a boy were arrested for fighting in public and obstructing a peace officer, the newspaper reported. Carringer believed that the agreements were not limited to a group of people and that everyone involved was either patrons or guests at the hotel.
Police did not immediately know what aroused local straws, except that it started in the pool area.
“It looks like it just snowballed and evolved and grew,” Carringer said according to the registry.
Raymond Brown, 11, told Los Angeles KTLA-TV that the free for all began when he playfully pushed his cousin in the hotel pool and the boy landed on some other children. It created threats of a fight from others that quickly drew in adults.

“Then they all went to the basketball court, and then we came into the hotel and they just started throwing bottles and things at us and then we started fighting,” he said.
Detectives plan to review surveillance videos to get a clearer picture of exactly what happened, according to the newspaper.
Carringer added that the hotel “unfortunately” did not implement social distancing guidelines requested by the county.
“We will start working with all our resources in the city and county to ensure we can follow the hotel,” he told the station.
