Wedding Reception Turns Into Family Brawl: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes


"A wedding reception in Norfolk, England, turned into a brawl when the best man pushed his way into the buffet line, police said.


The groom, Ben Smethurst, 26, said the fight began when his brother and best man, Danny, reached over a table for a piece of chicken.

Curt Hughes, the bride`s uncle, yelled at the best man and then punched him, Smethurst said.

Hughes then punched the bride`s sister, mother and father, the groom said."


I`m surprised this incident took place in Norfolk, England and not Hicksville, Alabama. Reaching over a table for a piece of chicken is considered the epitome of bad manners in the South.

Anyone surprised that these uncouth people were gorging on fried chicken, and not dining on caviar and sipping champagne?

Eight cop cars and two police vans reported to the altercation at the wedding reception. If these bumpkins lived in America they would have already been offered a reality show.

The bride`s uncle was arrested on suspicion of assault, and the bride`s sister suffered a broken nose and not one, but two black eyes.
