The police said they received an alert concerning the brawl at 11 o’clock on Sunday morning.

The ST report says that a spokesman for Jewel had no details to add concerning the fight, when questioned, and that the incident is now being investigated by the police.

A woman named Lekha K Silva uploaded the clip to Twitter as well, captioning it, “Drama at A&W cause of seats, relax la guys, take ferry to bayam eat and come back.”
