20 People Involved in Chuck E. Cheese's Brawl That Nets 2 Arrests

Town of Brookfield Police says someone used pepper spray in fight, which started because one kid was taking too long to exchange game tickets for a toy, FOX6 News reports.

Two women were arrested Saturday night after a fight involving as many as 20 people broke out at the Chuck E. Cheese's in the Town of Brookfield, according to FOX6 News.

Five people also were treated for injuries after someone used pepper spray in the fight,which reportedly started because a child was taking too long to exchange his game tickets for prizes, FOX6 reports.

The isn't the first time police have been called to the family restaurant at 19125 W. Blue Mound Road — not by a long shot. However, it has been several years since Town of Brookfield police were routinely showing up at the restaurant to break up fights.

In 2007 and 2008, police were called to this Chuck E. Cheese's nearly 100 times, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Although problems appear to have lessened since then.

Chuck E. Cheese's — which bills itself as a place where "a kid can be a kid" — has problems with fights all over the country. 

In February of this year, three adults were arrested on multiple charges of battery, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct stemming from a disturbance at Chuck E. Cheese in Oak Lawn, IL, a suburb of Chicago.

Two weeks ago, a fight broke out at at Chuck E. Cheese's in Long Island, NY, in which a woman was throwing punches while holding a baby. The YouTube video of that fight has received more than 158,000 views.

For racial sake; lets call them white trash crackers to appease each side.

The reason Stone Fire doesn't have this is because some people cannot afford their price of admission to get in. When I used to take my children to Chuck E Cheese in the early 80's you could just walk in and have fun. Pay to get in vs. free to get in....hmmmm.......

Barb that is absurd on many levels. Each place charges for the games separately from the food. Chuck cheese lets you order off the menu and Firestone has a buffet. The food bill at the end is within dollars of each other. It is NOT cost. Given the fact the Stone fire is as poplar as Chuck (both are very crowded) it appears there is something else going on... You arguments missed the cause completely.

@Lundt... Maybe it's the pizza preference!
Mr Lundt July 30, 2013 at 06:25 PM
@I'm here If that's true I need that recipe for my kids!

You reap what you sow. I remember when that site was a bare field, with Aliota's tavern and restaurant in the front. Perhaps the property tax revenues were less, but I think the Town was better off.

I remember the diner!

The original Chuck E. Cheese was a tough-looking cockney bowler hat-wearing East London back alley sort of rodent. Then he got all suburb Dizneyfied. They need to bring him back--with a hoodie.

The diner - is that the one that was on the north side of Bluemound Rd?
Randy1949 July 31, 2013 at 12:54 PM
Yes -- just east of Koch's A&W Stand. Maybe my memory is playing tricks on me, but I dimly recall them moving it a mile or so west to Goerkes Corners for a short time. And across the road, on the south side, was a restaurant called the Milk Jug. You could actually watch cows being milked in a tiled milking parlor. That site/building has been through many names and sedigns. It's the Bonefish Grill now, I think.
Bob McBride July 31, 2013 at 01:02 PM
Yeah, I remember a building that looked like an old A&W being at Goekes Corners (It now sits at the head of the bike trail near Country Springs as kind of a rest area for bikers/hikers). The diner I remember looked like the old dining car style diners of the 30s and 40s. It had an addition built on the east end that housed a bar/coat room/waiting area for the diner (I think a separate entrance as well). I used to eat lunch there whenever I was out in the area making calls. I can't remember the name of it.
Randy1949 July 31, 2013 at 01:11 PM
Nah -- that's the old 'pagoda' styloe building that used to be on Landsberg's tire dump. Koch's A&W was one of those three-season buildings, and it got torn down.= when the property got sold. I just dimply remember that silver diner being moved elsewhere-- to the post where the restaurant just east of the Motel Six sits now. The diner had a man's name -- upon which I am blanking. Needless to say, I live in the area and have since Bluemound was a two-lane blacktop west of Aliota's. My family and I are discussing whether or not we heard the sirens from last Saturday's melee at Chuckey's. We probably did.
Bob McBride July 31, 2013 at 01:18 PM
Ah..okay. I'm kind of remembering the A&W, now that you mention it was 3 seasons. I think when I used to go to the diner, it was in that position you remember it having been moved to. Wasn't a heck of a lot out there at that point. In fact, I think there was some development around Barker and some more around Brookfield Square (Halfway House was still there - Panetti's Motorcycles - the putt putt golf - that was about it). Most of the stretch was still vacant with a few spotty things in between (Aliota's, I think - wasn't it called the Polynesian such&such?)
Bob McBride July 31, 2013 at 01:21 PM
Here's a link that lists it as "Karter's Diner". I assume the same folks who had the restaurant on Capital Drive. Even has a couple pictures!... http://www.two-lane.com/diners.html
Randy1949 July 31, 2013 at 01:30 PM
Panetti's is still there, as Don & Roy's. Aliota's was always Aliota's from the time we moved out her in 1952. (It's a mattress store now different building.) The Leilani Motel (again, I fwas right across the road from the diner, and the Algiers Motel (both owned by Harold Lardinois) was a little bit west of Brookfield Road. Those came a little later. It's all gone now, for strip malls. Yes! Karter's Diner! For some reason,'Karl's' was popping into my ancient head.
Bob McBride July 31, 2013 at 01:59 PM
Okay...the Leilani Motel...I think that was the one I was thinking of with the Polynesian motif. I think my dad used to drag us out there for the Sunday brunch or something...Was it Gilles or Giles Leilani at some point?
Randy1949 July 31, 2013 at 02:12 PM
Yep -- It was 'Giles' Leilani' at one point and 'Harold's Leilani' at another, and I forget which came first. I do remember when they burned down the Algiers to make room for the strip mall. I went to grade-school with 'Harold's' daughter, and I remember the names of the farm families along the road. I should join the historical society. Heck, I should BE the historical society. LOL
I'm here July 31, 2013 at 02:34 PM
Glad I could bring back some memories for you fellas!
Randy1949 July 31, 2013 at 02:40 PM
Thank you! And I just want to say, the 'problem patrons' at Chucky Cheese do not arrive by bus. The bus stops on that section of Bluemound are not family-friendly when it comes to accessing the Chucky Cheese on foot with small children.
Amanda Ovadal July 31, 2013 at 11:47 PM
They need to put one west! One closer to oconomowoc or Johnson creek. I hate this location.
Frank Burns August 01, 2013 at 09:42 AM
Asians treating their kids after a mathematics convention, no doubt. Or perhaps Swedish immigrants.
KAY KRISTIN August 02, 2013 at 09:24 AM
Time to close this location down.
Randy1949 August 02, 2013 at 11:06 AM
Then the problem moves elsewhere and the Town is left with a vacant building. It's a real shame people can't behave like adults.
KAY KRISTIN August 02, 2013 at 11:19 AM
Fill the vacant building with a business that doesn't attract people of that nature.
Mr Lundt August 02, 2013 at 05:52 PM
Kay In the end, the public will close it down because they will not patronize the business. We need to stop relying on nanny to do for us what we should do ourselves.
KAY KRISTIN August 02, 2013 at 06:00 PM
I meant that it's time for Chuck E Cheese's to close that location down. Not 'nanny'.
Mr Lundt August 02, 2013 at 06:14 PM
Gotcha Kay!!!
pupdog1 August 03, 2013 at 03:23 PM
Whatever the Chuck E. Cheese replacement venture is, have the city put a sign out front that says "High School." That should do the trick.
Justin Scott August 09, 2013 at 12:44 PM
just pathetic,going to start a fight over something stupid.some people really need to grow up
