ARLINGTON, Va. - Arlington police say a brawl broke out during the DMV music awards ceremony, sending one person to a local hospital.

Police say five people were treated Saturday night at the scene of the awards ceremony, which honors local rap, hip-hop and R&B performers.

About 1,500 people attended the ceremony at the Crystal City Hyatt, and witnesses said more than 20 police vehicles responded to deal with a half dozen fights that broke out.

Why would the Dept of Motor Vehicles have a music awards show?

The DMV? What a weird place to have an awards ceremony. I guess that is where the Hip Hop crowd hangs out anyway so why not.

I think the “DMV” referred to is the “District, Maryland, and Virginia”. In that area, people refer to the District of Columbia as “The District”, and Maryland and Virginia suburbs are referred to by the state name.

I think it is actually Deutsche Mathematiker-Vereinigung (German Mathematical Society). Nothing's quite as thrilling as a German math professor rapping. And the East German/West German math wars are as famous as they are deadly.

I bet somebody got “dissed” and so the violence broke out because of that.

Certain people take high offense at being “dissed”, and feel the need to retaliate for all slights, real and imagined.

You have to do something to while away the hours when you're waiting for your license.

I thought the lack of talent by the whole genre might mar the event.

That’s what the entitlement welfare society does to you.

How would you like to work security at one of these things? These rappers trash each other in their songs so you know they are going to sucker-punch each other if they get into the same room.

You don’t want to be responsible for people who consider Prison to be a career-enhancement.
