Lovely… #Occupy Nashville Gals Brawl on Christmas Day (Video)
Lovely. The ladies duked it out on Christmas Day… And one was pregnant.
News Channel 5 reported:
Protestors have been together since October 6 th occupying Legislative Plaza. But on a day that many intended to be full of festivities, quite the opposite took center stage for a time.
“Well, today we’re celebrating mainly Christmas, but all holidays, of course,” said protestor Lauren Mindos.
The group’s plan to celebrate the holidays together seemed fitting, especially since they’ve spent so much time together over the past few months and friends have become like family.
“It was a beautiful day. There was music,” explained Mindos. “There was dancing.”
However, that peace didn’t last the entire day.
Tensions flared between Occupy Protestors on this Christmas day. The situation got so bad, one of the NewsChannel 5 videographers had to call police for help.
NewsChannel 5’s videojournalist was on assignment at Legislative Plaza Sunday covering the holiday celebration, when the angle of the story suddenly changed.Two of the protestors started arguing with each other; one of them was three-months pregnant. Harsh words led to hair pulling and punching, and both of them landed on the ground.
While other protestors tried to break up the situation, NewsChannel 5’s videographer called 911 for help. Medics rushed to the scene and took the pregnant protestor to the hospital to be checked out. Police started investigating the situation, and charges may be filed.
