All is Calm, Few are Bright

A Christmas party for employees of the Los Angeles County, Calif., Men’s Central Jail turned ugly when a brawl broke out that resulted in seven deputies being relieved of duty. Local police received an anonymous 911 call around midnight that a fight had broken out at the party of roughly 100 guests, including sheriff’s supervisors, at the Quiet Cannon banquet hall.

At least two people received minor injuries, but no arrests were made — yet. Administrative and criminal investigations have been started. (JW/Los Angeles Times) ...If there was alcohol involved, one could assume there was idiocy committed.
