    Lmfao, what has society come down to. And no, it wasn't just a packet of peanuts, it was the last :eek:

    A row over the last packet of peanuts in a working men's club triggered a street fight involving 50 people.

    Dozens of police officers had to be called to the scene in Tunbridge Wells and used CS gas to calm brawlers, reports Metro.

    The High Brooms Working Men's Club in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, was packed with more than 100 people when the fight broke out.

    "One minute everyone was a having a great time chatting away about this and that and then two guys started arguing at the bar over a bag of dry roasted nuts," said eye-witness Charles Greenway, 47.

    "They were telling the barman that they wanted the last bag and eventually one just lamped the other and it all kicked off with half the club punching and kicking each other.

    "It was a sad end to the night, I can tell you."

    The fight spilled out into the street, prompting dozens of neighbours of the club to call police. Police confirmed about 50 people were involved in the brawl.

    Seven men, aged between 18 and 49, were arrested on suspicion of committing public order offences. Five have been bailed and two have been issued with fixed penalty notices.

    A spokeswoman said: "Officers used incapacitant spray when making the arrests in order to subdue those believed to be involved."

    They all must have brains the size of peanuts... or were extremely drunk. Either way, they are correlated.

    I love the way the eye witness describes what type of nuts they were, people wouldn't have been able to sleep otherwise, worrying about whether they were salted or dry roasted.
