PHILADELPHIA (AP) – A second man is facing felony charges in a brawl between two wedding parties that was caught on video at a hotel in downtown Philadelphia.
Prosecutors say 29-year-old Westfield, N.J., resident Brian Lanza was charged Tuesday with aggravated assault, criminal conspiracy and other counts in the Oct. 7 fight at a hotel in the city’s Society Hill section.
The altercation involved dozens of people in ball gowns and tuxedos and was caught on tape by a teenage hotel guest as dozens of police struggled to break things up. Authorities say a 57-year-old man suffered a fatal heart attack.
Investigators have been reviewing the video and Lanza is the second person facing felony charges. A message at a telephone listing for him said the number was not accepting calls.
