One of Jonathan’s friends suffered a broken arm, chipped tooth and a concussion. The third friend was also beaten.
The fight started over beeping horns in the parking lot gridlock. Gary says, “Someone beeped a horn, next thing you know they got 27 guys beating them and they’re in fear for their lives.”
