Police said that during the fight, several uninvolved patrons were pushed and some children were knocked to the floor. Both sides participating in the brawl each blamed the other side for starting it.
The officers were unable to locate a reliable witness, and security video was not available at the time of the incident to determine who was the aggressor, reports said.
There were no injuries to patrons, children or the participants in the conflict. The manager wished to sign complaints against the alleged brawlers. Seven women and one man were taken to the Oak Lawn police station.
