Elyria – A disturbance late Saturday night at Holly Hall is something you would normally see on a bad episode of “Brides Gone Wild” – but as the disturbance poured into the streets many Elyrian’s were able to get a first hand look.

Witnesses say that a wedding reception that was being held inside of Holly Hall turned ugly when guests began fighting. One witness who didn’t want to give her name was sitting on a patio located next to the hall – “They were first fighting outside here and it seemed like just more and more people started coming outside from the party and they would get involved too. It was just crazy how it went from bad to worse in a matter of moments. Then as Police started showing up they moved the fight back inside of the hall.”

When Police Officers arrived they began calling for additional units as the crowd swelled.

Paramedics were called to the scene originally after a man inside the hall through a chair into the crowd and hit someone. As Paramedics and Firefighters arrived to treat that victim another guest began having chest pains in the parking lot. More ambulances were called as other guests began complaining of feeling faint and difficulty breathing.

Police, with the help of Deputies from the Lorain County Sheriff’s Department, quickly got the crowd under control and cleared the area. In the end only two people were arrested, one for the fight itself and another who Police discovered had outstanding warrants.

We were not able to confirm if the Bride had a chance to throw her bouquet before the fight broke out.

Holly Hall is located on Holly Lane just off of West Ave.
