It was supposed to be a celebration of love, but it turned into a brawl with security for one bride-to-be and her friends.
Houston natives Samantha Rice and Lacey Faulkner went to New Orleans to join a group of women getting turned up at a bachelorette party for their friend on Friday.
Video captured of the incident that went down at a Bourbon Street bar shows Rice struggling with a security guard. She reported that the situation escalated after a bartender cursed her out and told her she couldn’t sit at the bar. When she was trying to leave, she reportedly knocked over some plastic cups and security stepped in, pinning her down.
“I asked him to loosen his grip,” she said. “He was hurting me really bad.”
Faulkner tried to intervene and can be seen in the video jumping in as the security guard knocked her back. She said he hit her three to four times and reported soreness in her jaw, arm and the back of her head.
“I was under the bar and he kept wailing on me,” she said. Rice was left with multiple bruises on her arms.
The unnamed bride could be seen in the video wearing a veil as she also tried to break up the fight only to reportedly be thrown to the grown by the same security guard fighting with her friends.
Police arrived at the scene and the incident was reportedly documented, but there has been no new information released on the case.
