Wig-ripping brawl breaks out at Manhattan bar

Authorities are investigating a wild wig-yanking brawl that started in a midtown Manhattan bar and spilled onto the street, where bodies were slammed into walls, hair was pulled off and screams echoed in dark streets.

No arrests were made in the fight, which happened shortly before 3 a.m. Thursday at Faces & Names Lounge and Bar on 54th Street and Seventh Avenue. The NYPD confirmed to News 4 it had no arrests in this case but provided no other details on the crazed violence that unfolded.

Witnesses said it started when a bartender told someone to leave the establishment. The person then allegedly attacked the bartender. A group in the bar purportedly came to the bartender’s defense, while yet another group was recording the exchange.

The first individual ran off after that. But the women defending the bartender allegedly disliked that they were being filmed, told the people who took the video to delete it, and when they were refused, the all-out chaos erupted.
