A Brawl Staged for Bruno?

Blue Collar Brawlin'

Recent events held in Texarkana and Fort Smith, Arkansas just might find their way into the upcoming Bruno movie. When contacted, the producers of the film had no comment.

Crowds in Arkansas came for the lure of cage fighting and $1 beer, but police say what they got instead was men ripping each others’ clothes off and kissing – a stunt suspected of being orchestrated by Sacha Baron Cohen of “Borat” fame.

An elaborate array of mounted and handheld video cameras caught the crowd of 1,600’s reaction as the two men “went right up to the line” of the city’s morality laws, Holland said. The two men stripped down to their underwear, kissed and rubbed on each other, the sergeant said.

The audience, as well as local fighters drawn to take part in the show, became enraged. “It set the crowd off lobbing beers,” Holland said. “They had beers in plastic cups. Those things can get some distance on them actually.”

Holland said it took officers about 45 minutes to clear the convention center, as the two actors sprinted away through a specially set-aside tunnel. [AP/CBS News]
