Weddings are usually a time to celebrate, (and/or pretend to celebrate) the phemonenon known as true love. At this Philly hotel however, said conceptual interpretations of love were overshadowed by an ugly, ugly turn of events.
The fight started in the bar at the appropriately named Sheraton Society Hill Hotel and soon spread to the lobby. According to always reliable YouTube commenters, the altercation was triggered when one wedding party, which had a pay bar, attempted to crash the open bar of the other party, which, if true, is as good a reason as any to fight.
Seven police officers can been seen in the video, including one who beats the hell out of an unruly guest with his baton. Police were so overwhelmed that, according their report, they had to call for backup twice. About halfway into the clip, one of the brides enters the fray and appears to go down, perhaps from contact from police. Eventually, she's escorted out.
Tragically, an Uncle of one of the Brides passed away from a heart attack following the incident. He was repotedly not involved in the fight directly, but it wouldn't be too much of a stretch to say something like this wasn't the primary contributor. Three men were also arrested.
If weddings are a night one dreams for, this one was quite the nightmare.
