That 'brawl' at Opening Day



Well, it's making the rounds, but it seems that things got a little more serious than a bit of public peeing and drunk driving on Monday, when a brawl broke out. Or at least that's what a video is alleged to show. There's another video posted to Facebook which appears to show a different view of the drunken melee.

No word yet on whether any criminal charges were filed. The incident is a black mark on an otherwise happy day for Tiger fans, but … when you mix twentysomethings, alcohol, and the sort of "anything goes" atmosphere of Opening Day, this is what you can get.
