In just under a week after a riot at a local mall over sneakers, and NBA-All Star Weekend, the city of sunny Orlando finds itself back in the news after a fight that broke out during a Young Jeezy concert Sunday night was caught on video. Rowdy fans in attendance at the BB King Blues Club on Sunday (Feb. 26) evening were inching too close to the stage, prompting security to ask revelers to step back. When they refused, fades began to be administered.
TMZ obtained exclusive footage of the fight, which was taken on a smartphone webcam. The noisy clip clearly depicts someone flinging a drink angrily at the stage and mayhem naturally ensuing. People were hit with chairs, bottles and reportedly a microphone stand as well. Young Jeezy attempted to calm down the crowd and get back to the show, but the horde would not yield to his demands.
Wisely, Jeezy and crew snuck out the back before things escalated to uncontrollable levels. Sources say that Jeezy was disappointed in the club’s staff for not getting the situation in order. It isn’t known if anyone was badly injured during the brawl and the venue has offered no public comment.
Stay classy, Orlando.
