Police call bizarre 8-man Anchorman-style machete fight ‘unbelievable’
Eight men armed with machetes battled it out after three cars were all involved in a crash.
Police were called to the scene on Car Bank Avenue in Atherton, Greater Manchester, England when people witnessed men brawling on the streets with massive knives, according to UK Sky News.
While police did find one man with small injuries and the cars involved in the crash, all other men involved in the fight vanished. A silver Fiat Stilo, a black Vauxhall Astra and a blue Vauxhall Omega were all abandoned after those involved ran from law enforcement.
Police are searching for anyone who witnessed the incident or saw the men running from the scene of the accident.
Detective Sergeant Craig Hurst said: “This is an unbelievable incident on the streets of Atherton. I know the community will be alarmed but we are putting all our efforts into finding those responsible. There will be extra police in the area and anyone with any concerns can speak to our officers. Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to get in touch as soon as possible.”
A similar fight broke out between the warring news stations in the Will Ferrell classic “Anchorman.” Eight men also began that fight as well, though it eventually grew much larger.
