Video footage has been uploaded of chairs being thrown across the room and glasses being smashed as the trouble spills out into the casino’s food court and the car park. The scene has been described by witnesses as like a ‘wild frat party gone wrong’.
Police, who estimate that about $2,000 worth of damage was caused in the casino, arrested three men on Saturday night. One man was released after being given a summons for disorderly conduct, while the two other men, both of whom had outstanding warrants, were charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and obstructing governmental administration.
Another arrest has been made after surveillance footage was used to track down a man suspected of firing a gun in the parking lot. He has been arrested on charges of assault, criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment.
Authorities found that nobody had been injured by the gunfire, but many people are said to have suffered minor injuries in the skirmish. A statement by the casino said that their security had worked to stop the fight and insisted their priority was to ensure the safety of their guests.
A spokesperson for the casino said: "We are reviewing all aspects of this unfortunate event and are fully committed to taking steps to ensure similar acts do not take place ever again."
