(Newser) – Police officers yesterday broke up a massive brawl at a baby shower by tasing at least one person and arresting four others, WHDH reports. It began when an officer tried breaking up a fight during the shower at a neighborhood social club in Stoughton, Mass., police say. Things got so ugly that cops called in three more police departments, the sheriff's department, and state police to tame the 200-person brawl. A few partygoers and police officers were injured, but none seriously. The four suspects were each charged with assault and battery on a police officer. Hat tip to Raw Story.

A baby shower? Can you imagine the commotion if it had been a wedding reception or bachelor party?

May that blessed child grow up to be strong and healthy enough to one day brawl at his or her child's baby shower.
