Vicious Brawl Erupts at Child's Birthday Party – and It Was All Caught on Camera

Adults, several of whom are holding toddlers in their arms, are seen in the party room's surveillance video arguing and shoving and punching.

A six-year-old's birthday party at a recreational bounce complex was going just fine.

There was cake. Happy little kids. And of course "Buddy," the facility's big-dog mascot, showed up to lend an extra shot of levity to the festivities.

But once friction developed among adult family members on hand — apparently over who was and wasn't supposed to be invited, police said — what began as a fun night at the Jump Yard in Ohio took a nasty turn.

Police said one couple left the party room for the parking lot where they said they found their car tires slashed, reported WKYC-TV in Cleveland, and returned to the room to question those in the group of about 20.

Then, for the next minute and a half, it's on.

Adults, several of whom are holding toddlers in their arms, are seen in the party room's surveillance video arguing and shoving and punching — and right in front of "Buddy," no less.

Some adults attempt to take children away from the melee, including one staff member in a yellow T-shirt who grabs and pulls one to a safer spot.

Another adult is seen mobbed and thrown against a wall by several others while a woman is shoved to the ground and punched and kicked.
