(Video) Jealousy over a threesome between passengers sparked 60-person brawl on carnival cruise ship

A witness claims that jealousy over a threesome amongst passengers led to a fight that broke out between dozens of individuals aboard a cruise liner. The travel agent who was an eyewitness to the altercation informed Fox News that the brawl started over infidelity charges.

The tumultuous event was captured on camera. Between 40 to 60 individuals started pushing and hitting one another.

The argument began between two passengers on the nightclub dance floor. However, as more and more others joined in, it rapidly got out of hand.

The altercation took place on the ship’s last night of an eight-day Caribbean voyage that included. The cruise had stops in Dominican Republic, Turks & Caicos, and the Bahamas.

Theresa James said that the incident took place near the ship’s disco and casino. It began shortly before 2 a.m. and lasted for a whole hour. During the brawl, bottles were broken and a lady was also cut. However, no significant injuries were noted.

A few ship security personnel tried to break up the battle where they could. They were greatly outnumbered as it eventually spread throughout the ship from the fifth level down to the first floor.

James described the guests who got into the altercation as “ignorant fools acting stupid,” in her words. She gave the security crew credit for getting involved in the altercation and eventually bringing it under control.

A witness under the handle @nyeem0 claimed on Twitter that he was “at the bar listening to my own music sipping a Shirley Temple, then the brawl broke out of nowhere!”

The witness added: “it was the last night so i guess they wanted to go out with a bang, but a lifetime ban from cruising is wild lol.”

It is unclear whether the ship was in New York, New Jersey, or on international seas when the fight broke out, making the question of criminal jurisdiction confusing. The battle happened as the ship entered the New York port.

Following the altercation, no arrests were made. It wasn’t clear which agency would oversee the inquiry. The cruise line representatives informed the Coast Guard who deployed a boat from Staten Island to accompany the ship to dock in Manhattan.

At Pier 88, where police and paramedics were preparing to welcome it, the ship arrived without incident.

The event was first referred to by the NYPD as “emergency docking.” However, Carnival later told PIX11 that it was really a planned port visit.

The statement added, “Last night while Carnival Magic was returning to New York, a number of guests were involved in an altercation in a nightclub. The ship arrived as scheduled this morning and shoreside law enforcement authorities were notified and met the ship to interview suspects and witnesses and conduct an investigation.”

According to the police, the passengers left the ship without any problems.
