Police tear-gas noisy restaurant brawlers

POLICE said yesterday that they had to use tear gas to break up a fight between two parties in a downtown restaurant on Wednesday night.

One party agreed to cover the medical bills of a victim after both woke up yesterday morning at a police station following the night of drinking.

The fight was first reported to police on Wednesday night about 9:20pm in the Four Seasons Japanese-food restaurant on Xinhua Road in Xuhui District.

Four men in one room came to complain to people in another room that they were too noisy, police said.

The quarrel soon became a fight as both parties consumed a lot of alcohol, police said. The only real injury came to a man who suffered a cut on the foot due to fallen dishware in the dispute.

However as the police officers arrived, the two parties did not hold back. Officers described it as a "situation out of control."

With the arrival of back-up officers and two members from a SWAT team, police fired tear gas at the fighters.

The brawlers were later taken to the Xinhua Road police station nearby, police said.

The four men who had lodged the complaint finally agreed to pay 6,000 yuan (US$940) for medical fare to the man they injured, police said.
