Brawl breaks out in Denny's, caught on video

SAGINAW TOWNSHIP, MI (WNEM) -

"I just expected to go in there and get some pancakes," said Timothy Holden.

Holden and long time friend Tre’Varis Jones went to get a Grand Slam breakfast at 4 a.m. on New Year’s Day. But there were no pancakes.

“It’s like when you hear someone hit a homerun,” Jones said.

Right after ordering their food at Denny's on Tittabawassee and even before they could get a sip of water the pair said customers inside the restaurant jumped out of their seats after hearing what sounded like the crack of a baseball bat.

"Next thing I know... I just see something fly," Jones said.

Jones said he did what his gut told him to do when a group of guys started throwing chairs - pull out his phone and open up Snapchat to capture some footage of a brawl that broke out a few feet from his table.

Holden said he had a slightly different plan once chairs started flying around the restaurant.

"My mom always taught me when I have an instinct inside of me to get out, I get out," Holden said.

After capturing about 10 seconds of video, Jones said he wasn't far behind his friend. The two got out unharmed, but still hungry.
