A group of hipsters and a stag party have been involved in a nine man brawl described by onlookers as ‘like a shit Royal Rumble’ in central Brighton.
The drama unfolded at about 9pm at the junction of West Street and South Street as Hipster Finley McIntosh explains, ‘We had just been to a new pop up craft ale bar and we on our way to a vegan pop up restaurant when we heard a group of men starting to shout stuff at us’.
Finley said that the stag shouted ‘Wahey! You look like Jesus you beardy c***’. Finley then approached the group. He said:’I’m an atheist but we all agreed we needed to educate the men about tolerance so we approached them when one of them kicked my friend Benny’s vintage racing bike.
The stag do who had come down from Crawley and were staying at the Travelodge had a different take on events as best man Martin Ellis explained ‘ We had been in the Wetherspoons all day before going to Yates. We left Yates to finish the night in Pryzm and these group of ‘weirdo’s’ just came at us. They made a comment about the stag Terry’s shoes and jeans an that was it I lost it, I pushed him and he kicked my shin. ‘It was lucky Terry held me back because I would have ‘done them all’. I asked the lads to hold me back because they know what I’m capable of luckily, they did. If they hadn’t of held me back well; its just not worth thinking about’
After the havoc the group went their separate ways however it left lot of passers-by visibly shocked and upset at the events that unfolded in front of them. Police have said no charges will brought against either side as both groups had mutually agreed to put the incident down as ‘just banter’.
