It seems like not a month goes by where a wild restaurant brawl doesn't hit the internet and go viral. Last week it was a McDonald's employee bashing a customer in the head with a metal rod. This weeks it's a melee at Waffle House.
The latest shows what appears to be two rival groups squaring off at what the video says is a Waffle House in Tuscaloosa, AL. It starts "innocent" enough, with the cameraman taking some footage of some verbal sparring. But the verbal jabs soon give way to physical ones and all hell breaks loose. Soon, multiple fights break out inside and outside the restaurant. The camera catches multiple chairs being used as weapons and even one man body slamming another on a table. And after it all, the "winning" side can be seen high-fiveing and chest bumping.

According to Al.com, police have tracked down some of those involved and made arrests:
Tuscaloosa police arrested three suspects and have identified up to three more in a Sunday morning fight at a Waffle House that was caught on video and uploaded to YouTube.
Brandon DeQuan Harper, 21, and Justin Darnell Harper, 19, both of Tuscaloosa, were charged with disorderly conduct and transported to Tuscaloosa County Jail, Tuscaloosa Police Department spokesman Sgt. Brent Blankley said. Both bonds were set at $300.
A 17-year-old juvenile also was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. Blankley said two to three other suspects have been identified and warrants will be obtained for them.
Investigators have determined that the fight was linked to an August robbery, Blankley said. The suspect in the case saw the victim in the Waffle House, then started an altercation that led to the fight.
