Video of a wild brawl at an Orangeburg, South Carolina International House of Pancakes (IHOP) has made its way to the company's corporate headquarters, forcing the restaurant chain to reevaluate how to keep its patrons safe.
The video, posted on YouTube on Saturday, shows a heated conversation between a man and a woman quickly degenerate into an all out brawl, complete with thrown punches, thrown cups, and one man wielding what looks like a cane. It starts with a women yelling the curious phrase, "I ride the ride!":

Local Sheriff Barbara Walters told WIS-TV deputies were dispatched to the restaurant Saturday morning, but management didn't file a report. She added that nobody who appeared in the video has contacted the sheriff's office to file a complaint either.
An IHOP spokesperson told WIS the company is reviewing the video and that patron safety is the chain's top priority.
A similar fight broke out at a New York City restaurant this week, when a group of young girls attacked a Wendy's worker.
