Police and firefighter ice hockey game turns into mass brawl

A CHARITY ice hockey game between New York City cops and firefighters ended up in a mass brawl.

The ugly scene at the event in Uniondale, Long Island erupted in the second period as referees struggled to control multiple, one-on-one fistacuffs. Sticks and gloves littered the ice during the disturbing incident.

It was 3-3 when the second-period violence broke out. The NYPD eventually won 8-5.

Although witnesses said fan loyalties were decidedly even during the game, a YouTube video of the thuggish display captured fans loudly chanting “PD sucks, PD sucks” during the brouhaha.

The brawl led to a 25-minute delay as equipment was picked up and refs made laundry lists of penalized and ejected players.

A cop in the stands said he’s been coming to this NYPD-FDNY game for 20 years and had never seen a cop-firefighter brawl before.

Despite numerous black eyes and bruises, no players appeared to be seriously injured.
