THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

An exclusive video has been obtained by WALB and it shows a huge fight inside the American Legion in Thomasville.

The brawl is one of the main reasons the city is now considering revoking Post 519's alcohol license.

In the video, you can see people being hit with chairs and punches being thrown.

City officials and police leaders have seen the video.

During a hearing Wednesday afternoon, Chief Troy Rich called the video alarming, and he said no one called police that night to report the incident.

One woman needed 16 stitches on her hand after being hit with a metal chair.

The city council will make a decision on the license at their next meeting.
