Wisconsin Dells brawl started after someone moved a chair

Posted:
WISCONSIN DELLS (WISN) -

A wild fight that broke out Saturday at the Mt. Olympus resort in the Wisconsin Dells started "over something as ridiculous" as a disagreement about a chair, Lake Delton police Chief Daniel Hardman said Monday.

In a statement expressing incredulity, Hardman said he was disappointed that "cooler heads did not prevail" and that "the responsible parties allowed this event to escalate to such an extreme level inside a family oriented business."

Video published to social media of the brawl showed punches, chairs and a trash container thrown about the venue. Witness Joey Ney said the fight broke out between two families. 

Hardman said the melee started when one person took a chair from a different group's table within the water park.

He said the investigation was continuing, with video footage being compared to statements made by witnesses and others involved.
