SEATTLE - Five officers were assaulted Saturday night when they tried to break up a drunken brawl at a large baptism celebration at the South Park Community Center, police said.
The drama unfolded shortly before midnight when officers responded to reports of a disturbance at the center, located off 8th Avenue South near S. Thistle Street, said Seattle police spokeswoman Renee Witt.
Arriving at the scene, officers found that "abundant alcohol" was being served inside, and several of the celebrants had begun fighting, Witt said.
But when officers tried to break up the fighting, they were attacked by the crowd. The officers called for urgent backup, and a city-wide call went out for assistance.
King County sheriff's deputies also responded and helped break up the melee. Five officers were assaulted during the mayhem, and two of them received minor injuries.
The community center was evacuated, and the crowd was dispersed. Two suspects were arrested and booked into the King County Jail for investigation of assault, Witt said.
They sure do baptisms different in Seattle.
At least they weren’t dancing. Or were they?

@rc87 I’m giving you the benefit of the doubt and assuming you are WT? Correct? I’m pretty sure I am. Sounds like it - can’t compose a coherent (read that grammatically correct) 8-word sentence!
Uh, color, ethic background, religion - do you know the difference? Oh, wait, I know you are WT - that explains it all. Thanks for the entertainment, rc87, and though I do not accept any responsibility for the POWT, I do extend my apologies for his comments - please forgive him, he is WT and hopefully that “race” will be out in a generation or two.
They killed Kenny....those b...tards!
Alcohol at a Baptism is usually a foreign-born thing.
