Massive Brawl Breaks Out at Anaheim Hotel, Up To 100 People Involved

ANAHEIM (CNS) - A massive brawl broke out today at the Cambria Hotel & Suites in Anaheim involving as many as 100 people, police said.

Two people were arrested and two people were taken to a hospital with non-life threatening laceration injuries, Anaheim Police Sgt. Shane Carringer told City News Service.

Officers were sent to the hotel at 101 E. Katella Ave., a couple blocks from Disneyland, at around 12:40 p.m. They found about 40 people fighting outside the hotel and up to 60 more fighting inside, Carringer said.

The hotel was placed on lockdown while officers determined whether anyone needed further medical assistance.

Police said the situation was cleared at around 3 p.m., but the investigation into what caused the violence was ongoing.

Two people were arrested for fighting in public, said Carringer, who added that it appeared the melee involved multiple patrons at the hotel and was not confined to one group of people.

Carringer told the OC Register that the fight involved “men and women, adults and juveniles,'' adding that “it sounds like people had broomsticks and whatever objects they could find in the hotel.''

The sergeant told CNS that it appeared the fight started at the hotel pool and spilled into other areas. According to KTLA5, the melee began when some children at the hotel pool were playing and one of them was pushed into the water, landing on another child.
