NYPD, FDNY get into massive brawl at charity hockey game

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM - A bench-clearing brawl broke out during an annual charity hockey game between the NYPD and FDNY on Sunday at the Nassau Coliseum.

It all happened in the second period as referees tried to get a one on one fight under control.  

Within minutes, the benches cleared and it escalated into an all out brawl.

The referees’ efforts to mediate the fight proved futile as dozens of firefighters and police officers relentlessly punched and wrestled each other to the ground.

It was 3-3 when the second-period violence broke out.

The game was delayed for 25-minutes as gloves, sticks and trash were picked up off the ice.

Several players were penalized and ejected.

Fans at the event said they have never seen a bench-clearing, cop v.s. firefighter brawl before.

Despite numerous black eyes and bruises, no players appeared to be seriously injured.

The FDNY has beaten the NYPD at the annual event five years in a row.

But on this day, 'New York's Finest' finally snapped their losing streak and won the game 8-5.

Proceeds from the game went to various causes, including the "New York Police and Fire Widows' and Children's Benefit Fund."

Both the police and firefighters declined to comment on the fight.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
