FIGHT AT CHARITY HOCKEY EVENT: New York City Cops and Firefighters Shamelessly Brawl in Second Period of Charity Hockey Game


A bench-clearing brawl broke out during a charity hockey game between New York City cops and firefighters on Sunday in Uniondale, LI.

“It was reminiscent of the old-time Rangers-Flyers games in the mid-70s,” quipped an NYPD cop who was at the game at the Nassau Coliseum. “I was waiting for [legendary Philadelphia Flyers enforcer] Dave Schultz to come out on the ice.”

The ugly scene erupted in the second period as referees struggled to control multiple, one-on-one fistacuffs. Sticks and gloves littered the ice during the incident.

It was 3-3 when the second-period violence broke out. The NYPD eventually won 8-5.
