The incident happened just before midnight -- just one sucker punch turned a happy Massachusetts baby shower into a brawl of bottle-smashing and chair-bashing between 200 people.
The unruly mob surrounded police who say they were urging parents to get their kids away from the fray.
'The behavior was appalling. It was absolutely appalling. There’s just no other way to put it,' Stoughton Police Executive Officer Robert Devine said. 'The worst part was there was a lot of children. Our officers were concerned about the safety of the little ones, while the people who were fighting apparently could have cared less. They were swinging chairs and smashing bottles.'
One man, Patrick Cardoso Lopes, 24, of Brockton, was even hit with a Taser.
'Despite the danger they were in, they went with the less lethal option,' Devine said.
''The officers exercised extreme restraint. They had every right in the world to be in fear for their safety. It was a chaotic scene. It was probably one of the more dangerous ones they’ve been in. It was a baby shower. The baby’s father wasn’t any help. He was arguing with us that this was his party and no one was leaving.''
