| by Michael Allen

A fight between parents at a Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurant in Matteson, Illinois on Saturday night ended with seven people arrested.

When police arrived about 8:30 p.m., they found several parents screaming obscenities and throwing chairs at each other, reports CBS Chicago.

Police officers ordered the people to stop fighting, but many ignored the command, so police used pepper spray to stop them.

Lester Whisby and Joe Lynch continued fighting and had to be physically restrained by police. The two men were charged with multiple crimes.

Triesha Jackson, Tevin Johnson, Johnny Fleming, Stephen Dyer and Leslie Whisby were all charged with reckless conduct and disorderly conduct.

Witnesses said the fight began after two children got into an argument. The mothers of the children then got into a confrontation and it escalated.
