NORTHAMPTON, Mass (WWLP) - Six people were arrested after a brawl outside a Northampton bar on Sunday.
The incident comes two months after a confrontation with police was captured on video outside the same bar, Tully O'Reilly's.
Six people were arrested early Sunday morning after a series of fights outside Tully O'Reilly's.
The three men and three women were arrested on various charges including assault battery against a police officer.
Northampton Police Lt. John Cartledge told 22News all of the officers on duty had to respond to this disturbance.
License Commission Chairman Bill Rosen told 22News that in accordance with Massachusetts Law, a number of incidents can impact the standing of a liquor license. Under regulation, all liquor licenses are subject to suspension or revocation. If police find a bar's management staff violates the terms of the liquor license, by either over serving a patron or failing to control the premises, they will file a complaint for a review hearing.
"People do get pretty rowdy and it does come with the territory of drinking. But at the same time, if it's going to continue to happen. I feel like its needs to get a little more under control," said former Northampton resident, Lizzie Macphail.
In the last eight years, Tully O'Reilly's has been part of four violation hearings; two of which resulted in no violations. Violations ranged from serving alcohol to a person under 21 to obstructing the clear of view of the interior of the restaurant.
