Drunken Brawling Dumbasses Prompt Police to Step Up Their Presence in Old City

Don't tase me, bro.

Three things that are certain in life: Death, taxes and Old City being overrun by mobs of brawling drunken dumbasses every weekend. But after the super-colossal fracas that unfolded near Second and Chestnut streets after bars closed early Sunday morning, Philly’s finest are going to start stepping up their presence in the violence-plagued neighborhood. Fox 29 reports that this latest fisticuff flare-up involved scores of beer-muscled goons raging hard in the streets, overwhelmed police, gunshots, and a gun-toting fool getting tasered. In response, police are pledging to increase uniformed patrols there, and employ “resources you might not see .” Oh, how mysterious. [myfoxphilly]
