This is the moment a waiter swings a chair above his head in a huge brawl with “drunk” diners who “refused to pay their bill” in the middle of a packed restaurant.

The incident was filmed in a restaurant owned by the Mexican chain BTK in the Perinorte shopping centre located in the municipality of Cuautitlan Izcalli in the central Mexican capital Mexico City, and was later shared on social media.

In the footage, diners and waiters are seen scuffling in the restaurant as brawlers use chairs to fend off oncomers.

At one point, a young mother is seen hurrying outside with a small child to apparently get away from the ongoing violence.

According to local media, the fight started after a group of allegedly drunk customers refused to pay the bill.

A spokesperson for BTK confirmed that the video was filmed in one of their restaurants in the Perinorte shopping centre and that it was “caused by a group of diners who refused to pay their bill”.

The restaurant chain also condemned the violence that took place in one if its establishments, which they want to portray as a venue “where families spend time together”.

An investigation is now underway and no arrests have been reported so far. It is unclear how much the bill was.
