Witness: Families Brawled At Chuck E. Cheese Over Prize Tickets

FORT MYERS, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – A large fight erupted at a local Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurant on Saturday after two children from two different families began to fight over prize tickets.

A woman, who identified herself only as Ashley, told WBBH 2 that the parents soon became involved in the disagreement. Rather than settling the matter quietly, however, the adults’ disagreement soon turned physical.

“The two family members just got into a big brawl,” she was quoted as saying. “All of the family members were hitting each other.”

She added, “Food was flying, and drinks, then [one woman] took the metal thing off the table and threw it.”

In all, an estimated 10 to 15 family members on each side of the fight became involved. When one participant pulled out pepper spray, Ashley said she, her children and other families evacuated the premises.

“We were coughing and stuff. So when the cops got there, we went outside and left. I just wanted to make sure it was safe,” she said.

Representatives from the Fort Myers Police Department told the station that, upon their arrival, most of those who had been involved in the fight had already left.

No arrests were made. However, restaurant managers forced those involved in the fight who remained to leave.

Additionally, the corporate office of Chuck E. Cheese’s released a statement to WBBH 2.

“We are deeply saddened that individuals would choose to behave in this manner in front of children and families,” it read. “We take altercations in our stores very seriously and have spent more than $15 million to date on measures to help ensure the safety of our guests.”

The statement continued, “As an environment dedicated to serving young children and families, Chuck E. Cheese’s will not tolerate violence of any kind in our stores.”
