Nassau, Bahamas – Now here’s a story where fine dining turned ghetto. News now coming into Bahamas Press confirms an early morning hostage brawl occurred at the Lucianos Restaurant at East Bay Street around 4 am today.
We’ve learned an Italian wedding here in The Bahamas had gone into overtime last night with guest celebrating into morning. It was then a hired DJ for the event refused to play music beyond 4am. In just seconds after the music stopped an intoxicated groom went over to the DJ and began screaming. Bridesmaids, groomsmen and other guests at his side [groom] began attacking the DJ and a brawl ensued. Others joined in like a gang and laid blows upon blows on the wearied DJ.
Bahamas Press then learned the manager and staff at the restaurant attempted to bring order to the mayhem, however, they two were attacked and held at gunpoint by the Italian guests and wedding party. It was like a scene from the Italian movie ‘Non ti muovere’ [Don’t Move]. ‘
One eyewitness told us it was surreal. “I could not believe this was happening, they told my husband not to move, that we cannot move and then some of the men in the wedding party closed the steel gate at the entrance of the restaurant so no one can escape. I could not believe this was happening,” a worker at the restaurant told BP.
In the end police were called to the scene and arrested some 15 visitors participating in the ordeal. The guest are staying at the world famous Atlantis. Blood could be seen at the scene where we are told the DJ taken to hospital.
All we say is this, that DJ must not have been Bahamian.
