Greenfield, West Allis police called after fight breaks out at wedding reception

Oct. 4, 2011

A fight that erupted at a wedding reception brought both Greenfield and West Allis police to Klemmer's Banquet Center, 10401 W. Oklahoma Ave., shortly after 1 a.m. Oct. 2.

According to a police report, an employee at Klemmer's called police early Sunday morning to report a fight involving 20 to 30 people, mostly males, had broken out in the banquet hall. Due to the large number of people involved in the fight, Greenfield police advised the West Allis Police Department, which also responded.

While both police departments were en route, the fight moved from the banquet hall into the parking lot. Most of the people in the fight left prior to or as officers arrived, and those who were still on scene refused to respond to officer's commands and fled.

One female employee was pushed down by a man, who also fled the scene. She refused medical treatment.

Police were able to stop one vehicle at 99th Street and Oklahoma Avenue. The driver, a 19-year-old man, was cited for multiple traffic offenses. The incident is still under investigation.
