Confetti throwing leads to fight at Boardman Applebee's

Posted: Updated:
BOARDMAN, Ohio -

A gender reveal party at a Boardman Applebee's led to a fight between staff and customers.

Police were called to the restaurant on South Avenue Monday just before 9 p.m.

Staff told police a party of 20 came in for the get-together.

They eventually went outside to throw confetti to reveal the baby's gender, according to the police report.

The staff said the party left confetti all over the sidewalk and on other customers' cars.

When they asked them to pick up the confetti, the workers said members of the group started yelling and throwing menus across the room, striking a hostess several times, the report said.

The group eventually left before police arrived.

A purse was left at the scene and police are investigating.

The workers also later noticed around $30 of the bill was not paid.

The staff asked those customers to be banned from the Applebee's and expected charges include theft without consent, menacing, littering, criminal mischief and assault.
