A fight broke out between eight people at Rockit's Famous Pizza on Saturday night after a couple offered their leftover food to people in line.
Police arrived at 222 N. Walnut St. around 3 a.m. after a Rockit's employee called Bloomington Police Department complaining about customers arguing. Officers spoke with a 22-year-old man and 21-year-old woman who said they had gotten into a fight with a group of six people, Sgt. Cody Forston said.
The two told officers they hadn’t eaten all of their food and saw a long line, so they asked a group of three women if they wanted to eat their leftovers and not have to wait in line.
The three women took offense to what the couple was asking them, Forston said, and began to punch the woman. The man then tried to intervene but was grabbed by three other men who punched him multiple times. Meanwhile, the woman was punched and kicked multiple times, police said.
The two both suffered bruises and cuts on their face, Forston said. The case is now inactive.
