PARTY FAVORS INCLUDE BULLETS AT BAY DISTRICT FIREHOUSE: Gunfire erupts as the long knives of warfare are drawn by brawlers at IHOP

LEXINGTON PARK, MD. – The Hollywood Volunteer Fire Department had quite a run on wild, boisterous and drunken groups renting their social hall a few years ago but cracked down on who and what group could rent the hall. Apparently, Bay District VFD is anxious to gain revenue for their well-appointed and attractive social hall perhaps to the point of lowering standards or possibly having to install metal detectors at the entrance.

St. Mary’s Sheriff Tim Cameron reports that on August 3, 2019, at approximately 1:52 a.m. deputies from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Department responded to the Bay District Volunteer Fire Department Social Hall located at 46900 South Shangri La Drive in Lexington Park, for the reported large disturbance with shots fired.

IHOP FIGHTING ARENA GOES CRAZY

According to Sheriff Cameron, later in the morning of August 3, 2019, at approximately 2:49 a.m. deputies responded to the International House of Pancakes (IHOP) located at 21991 Three Notch Road in Lexington Park for the reported disturbance.

The IHOP is a traditional fighting arena for local yahoos, who show up ready for bruising catfights and brawls after the bars close down and private parties in rental halls stop serving liquor.

Sheriff Cameron reports that when the law officers began to swarm the IHOP fighting arena, a large crowd began dispersing and units located a male victim, age 27, who had been stabbed.

This video is typical of many fights and brawls that take place at IHOP restaurants around the nation as the fighting class, catfight warriors and sometimes even IHOP employees mix it up with plates, fists, booster seats and slamming opponents with high chairs. Remarkably, many customers continue to eat their meals as the thugs and criminals conduct assaults on anyone who happens to get in their way. WARNING: language in the video is culturally appropriate. This video is fairly typical of brawls at the Lexington Park IHOP.
