Brawl Erupts At Food Stamp Office In East St. Louis

A dispute over a spot in line at a food stamp office downstate escalated into a full-fledged brawl.

The fight on Tuesday was captured on video and shows at least four women wrestling and punching each other.

At one point, the video shows two women grabbing each other while a
third punches one of them on the back of the head. At another point, a
woman walks across the office and punches another person in the face.
Security officers struggled to end the chaos. It took them several
minutes to separate the group and restore order. Some of the people
involved in the fight initially refused to leave.

The incident happened at the Illinois Department of Human Services
office in East St. Louis, reportedly only a few blocks from the police
station there.
