EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.
A New Jersey Transit¬†train¬†was forced to make an unscheduled stop after a large¬†brawl¬†broke out inside one of the cars, leading to the ejection of several passengers.
It's not yet clear what sparked the¬†brawl, which broke out shortly after 4 p.m. Saturday on a northbound Bergen/Port Jervis line¬†train.
NJ Transit spokesman John Durso Jr. tells The Star-Ledger of Newark that the fight began about 10 minutes after the¬†train¬†departed from Secaucus. The¬†train¬†soon made an unscheduled stop in East Rutherford, and authorities broke up the¬†brawl.
Sixteen people were eventually ordered off the¬†train, and two were issued summons for disorderly conduct. One person was treated at the scene for minor injuries.
The¬†train¬†resumed service 20 minutes after the unscheduled stop.
