A children's birthday party turned violent Saturday at Chuck E. Cheese's in Commack, and it was all caught on a cell phone video.

The video was posted to YouTube, in which, parents are seen throwing fists with one arm, and holding their children with the other, as the song "Happy birthday" plays in the background.

Workers at Chuck E. Cheese's are seen attempting to break up the fight, which appears to be between at least two women, but the brawl lasts for almost two minutes, according to the footage.

In one scene, a child is seen with her arms around her mother's waist, trying to hold her back from getting involved in the argument.

"Relax. You're out of control. There are children, children," a woman is heard saying off camera just before the argument turned violent.

Police confirmed that Fourth Crime Section officials are investigating the incident, looking over cell phone and surveillance video footage to determine exactly what happened.

Police also confirmed that a pocketbook was stolen during the brawl.

Black and White trash of LI represented right there. Sadly there is way too much of it on LI. Can't make this stuff up. I feel sorry for the kids of all involved.

Someone said take beer and wine off the menu. Why? First there is no evidence at this time anyone was drunk. Second, even if they were drunk why should their actions affect my ability to enjoy a alcoholic beverage. It's the same thing with firearms. Some psycho does something and then no law abiding citizen should be able to have a gun. Blame the people, not the object. If I was to drive drunk, should that in anyway affect your ability to drive your car? Of course not. Wake up people. This liberal sinkhole is getting out of control. There is a reason NY is voted dead last (50th out of 50 states) in terms of freedoms every year and people are leaving in droves.

Well this was a disgusting display. Hope the rest of the children there were too involved with video games or the ball pit to take notice of this craziness. @Steven K - "Liberal sinkhole"? Time for you to load up your gun rack and head south...Texas maybe? :)
Steven K July 16, 2013 at 08:32 AM
Gigi, yes we do live on a liberal sinkhole in case you did not notice and your response to me that I should go to Texas is a classic left wing bleeding heart liberal response. Thank you for being so predictable. Why should I go to Texas? Because there are still places that respect the Constitution unlike NY? Gigi, someone breaks into your home in the middle of the night, while your waiting for the police to come with guns to save you, your probably going to wish you had a gun rack, but at that point it will be too late.

I can't believe that both parties had no regards for their children whatsoever. Shame on both parents. Absolutely disgusting behavior.

All I could here during the video is something about crackers itching? Do some kids have allergies to animal crackers? Also maybe the woman with the darker complexion thought the $3500 Coach pocketbook was hers?
Al Right July 16, 2013 at 12:34 PM
Two Moms from Commack acting like that.....I listened to the video again and keeping hearing something about crackers... Maybe some of the kids took each others animal crackers? What will the two mothers say to each other if they see each other at a Commack PTA meeting?
Al Right July 16, 2013 at 12:43 PM
Does the woman that took the pocketbook have gold teeth? Is she from Dix Hills or Commack? Looks familiar...
Earl July 16, 2013 at 01:36 PM
Al Right, pretty sure you wont see any of them at a PTA meeting!

Sure you will! PTA -- (Punches Thrown Angrily)

Hate to say it but looks like white (lady employee) was involved in this to. She kept the white women inside n held the black child yet handed the child off to the other Black lady that came inside to hit the white lady yet wasn't same chick holding it earlier. What person hands off a baby to a black women that wasn't 1st holding the child just because she's black n grabs it ? Seems like she was keeping the white women in after knowing they took her purse. I'd have went through her to get mine. No license numbers gotten ? Just wondering.

Chuck E. Cheese caters to children. There is no reason why they should serve alcohol.

Check out the Patch article from July 1, "Police Ask Public's Help To Identify Shoplifter". I think the "pursesnatcher" in this video may be the same woman.

Chuck E Cheese is covered inside and out with camaeras. I would imagine everyone involved and their car will be located.

@Elby: Have you ever been to a child's birthday party at Chuck E Cheese's? The alcohol on the menu should be relabeled as "mother's little helper" or "whatever get's you through the day".
Jason Gabbert July 18, 2013 at 12:22 AM
I didn't even have to watch the video to know the participants would turn out to be black. Alas, I was right. These people just continue to uphold the embarrassing stereotypes that plague the race. Single mothers, no father in sight, being loud, obnoxious and out of control in public. Just like a bunch of wild animals. It's so sad.

Diversity!!!! And parents get questioned for sending THEIR kids to private schools? LOL

@2 Turn Tables: Parents get questioned for sending THEIR kids to private schools? Where? By whom? I wish everyone would send THEIR kids to private schools and pay for it themselves (no stupid talk of vouchers, etc,etc).

At minute 1:15 the black woman steals the white women's bag.
Richard Roper July 21, 2013 at 02:53 AM
there is a lot of low class white people in commack. seen it often.
Tom S July 22, 2013 at 08:49 AM
The ghetto has come to Commack
Paul L. July 22, 2013 at 12:48 PM
We can't assume that these people are from Commack.
knee jerk July 22, 2013 at 02:02 PM
Yes, I have even seen some ghetto blasters in the Commack area lately.
Richard Hurtz July 25, 2013 at 09:03 AM
looks like a Jerry Springer audition to me...

Where's GZ when you need him.

And "the best comment" goes to Richard Hurtz, hands down.
Earl August 02, 2013 at 12:00 AM
So did they ever track down any of this trash? Never hear follow ups about this stuff.
melinda August 02, 2013 at 08:59 PM
the white womans pocketbook was stolen by the black woman.....and the Chuckecheese people wouldn't let her go after the black woman and get it....that is what the fight was about.....

Stereotypes exist for a reason. Can't say everything is true across the board about everyone, but - generalities exist because they have been proven throughout time. You don't "generally" see white mothers holding their kids in one arm and beating down other moms... Pathetic ghetto fat trash.
