North Carolina Fashion Show Turns Into Full-On Riot

Police are currently investigating a YouTube video of a Charlotte neighborhood fashion show for members of the gay and transgender community that turned into a massive brawl.

1. A YouTube video uploaded on Sunday has received a lot of attention, both from internet users and local law enforcement.

2. The video shows a room full of people attacking each other with folding chairs, tearing the room apart.

3. At one point a woman catches a folding chair caught in mid-air, then picks up a large table and swings it at the crowd.

4. The brawl reportedly broke out after a contestant in the show became angry at a judge’s decision.

5. The fight took place at a function space that was rented out for the fashion show’s after party.

6. Police are currently investigating the incident and believe the same group of fashionistas may be responsible for a similar arson incident at a hotel in 2011.
