    A brawl involving hundreds of people broke out Friday just before 11 p.m. at Resorts World Casino with dozens throwing punches and tossing chairs. Three people were arrested, several were injured, and one officer walked out with a hand injury.

    One man arrested was released after being given a summons for disorderly conduct. Two others had previous warrants and are facing charges of disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and obstructing governmental administration.

    A casino spokesperson said security responded accordingly.

    "The safety of our patrons is Resorts World's top priority, and there is absolutely no room for this kind of behavior at our facility," the spokesperson said. "We are reviewing all aspects of this unfortunate event and are fully committed to taking steps to ensure similar acts do not take place ever again."
