This fight during a Black Friday sale had nothing to do with the deals.
Two men, one a Marine and the other a former Marine, were in a checkout line on Thanksgiving at a Walmart in Murrieta, Calif., when an older woman inadvertently bumped her cart into one of the men, repeatedly the Mercury News in San Jose, Calif., reported. The man then made a comment to the woman, police said. The other man rebuked him, demanding he respect his elders.
Only one solution presented itself: all-out brawl. Footage was subsequently posted to Facebook.
Though it was far from an Arthurian sword fight, this chivalry-inspired clash in the wrapping paper aisle did not lack in intensity. Ending without a clear winner, the brawl was broken up by two local police officers who had been hired by Walmart, the Mercury News reported.
One man suffered a broken nose, no arrests were made and no charges were pressed, the Mercury News reported. It is unclear if the men were made to pay for the damaged wrapping paper.
