Langley Mounties break up fights

Langley RCMP officers were called to a case of road rage and a drunken four-man brawl in two separate incidents in the City Thursday.

The four-way fight apaparently started in an apartment in the 20700 block of 56th Avenue, then spilled out into the apartment building’s lobby and then into the parking lot.

Witnesses nearby, who wished to remain anonymous, said at first it seemed there were two men fighting, and a fire alarm was also pulled at some point at around 3:30 p.m.

During the fight, several people tried to break things up, including some of the senior citizens who live in the building. One of the older men trying to stop the fight may have been hit.

Firefighters who responded to the alarm had to back off.

“They came after the fire department too,” said one woman who saw part of the incident.

Police arrived and broke up the melee. One man, wearing socks and underwear, was handcuffed and left to sit across the street while police finished their investigation.

Sgt. Ravi Pawar described the incident as a “mutual drunken fight” and said the apartment the men came from has been a source of noise complaints for loud parties in the past.

No one was seriously injured, with a bloody nose seemingly the worst of it.

A woman who was not involved in the fight had shortness of breath and was looked after by emergency responders.

The road rage incident happened before noon in the 5700 block of 203rd Street, in front of the Langley City Fire Hall.

Pawar said the incident seems to have begun when one car cut another off in traffic. The car that was cut off then allegedly followed , passed, and swerved in front of the first car, causing a very minor rear-end accident.

One of the drivers, a man in his late twenties, got out of his car and punched the other driver.

The incident was over quickly, but one driver has been released by police to appear in Surrey Provincial Court. 

The cars were not seriously damaged in the incident.
