Clogged toilet leads to massive bar fight in south-western Germany

What started with a clogged toilet at a bar in south-western Germany led to a massive punch-up involving 30 people Saturday night that had to be broken up, a police statement said.

A patron at a bar in the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg had alerted the next user that the toilet was clogged as he was leaving the washroom, which was met with verbal aggression.

Shortly afterwards, the two ran into each other at the bar, and the aggressive man beat the other into unconsciousness.

After the man regained consciousness, he called for back-up from his friends - as did the other man, causing a wild fistfight. Police were called to separate the groups and were also attacked in the ruckus.
