THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS. WE HAVE THE EXTENDED FORECAST COMING UP.>VIDEO OF CHAIRS THROWN ACROSS THE ROOM DURING A BRAWL INSIDE A BRONX RESTAURANT. CBS2’S TRACY CARRASCO LIVE IN CITY ISLAND. Reporter: CROWDS NOT SCARED AWAY TONIGHT AFTER VIDEO OF THAT FREE-FOR-ALL MADE ITS WAY AROUND SOCIAL MEDIA. MANY LOCALS SAY THIS IS NOT THE FIRST PROBLEM HERE AT SEAFOOD CITY AND IT WON’T BE THE LAST UNLESS PERMANENT CHANGES ARE MADE. CHAIRS FLYING, PUNCHES THROWN. THIS ALL OUT BRAWL INVOLVING POORLY CUSTOMERS CAUGHT ON CELL PHONE VIDEO INSIDE THE POPULAR SEAFOOD CITY RESTAURANT ON CITY ISLAND. THIS WOMAN WAS EATING DINNER WHEN THE FIGHT BROKE OUT. IT WAS OUT OF CONTROL, HONESTLY. I CAN’T BELIEVE PEOPLE EVEN ACT THAT WAY. Reporter: POLICE RESPONDED TO A 911 CALL AROUND 10:15 PM FOR A FIGHT IN PROGRESS. ONCE OFFICERS ARRIVED, IT HAD BROKEN UP. LONGTIME CUSTOMER CHRISSY MUNRO SAYS THIS IS NOT THE FIRST FIGHT SHE HAS SEEN. I HAVE SEEN THREE FIGHTS OVER THE YEARS. Reporter: AS DINERS PASS THE RESTAURANT ON THIS UNSEASONABLY WARM FEBRUARY FRIDAY NIGHT, THEY WERE GREETED BY THIS NEW SIGN STATING THE BAR WOULD BE CLOSED AT 6 PM UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. ASSEMBLY MEMBER MARK JOAN I SPEAKING ON BEHALF OF THE RESTAURANT SAYS MANAGEMENT IS ALSO INCREASING SECURITY BOTH INSIDE AND OUTSIDE. MAY HAVE ALSO PARTICIPATED IN THE NYPD FOR HIGHER SECURITY PROGRAM. IN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME, WE WILL SEE LAW ENFORCEMENT OUT HERE THAT WILL BE PAID BY THE ESTABLISHMENT. Reporter: MANY WONDER HOW LONG THESE CHANGES WILL LAST. THAT IS WHY MARJORIE VELASQUEZ, A MEMBER OF COMMUNITY ONE IS CALLING FOR SOMETHING MUCH STRICTER. THE NEW YORK STATE LIQUOR AUTHORITY TO PULL THEIR LIQUOR LICENSE WHICH IS UP FOR RENEWAL IN 2018. SACKS — SUSPENDED IMMEDIATELY.
