London - Three people were arrested at a wedding following a brawl over a pork pie, British police said Monday.

Officers from West Yorkshire Police's dog section tweeted that they were en route to deal with a “large fight at a wedding” at The Harold Club in Bradford, northern England, on Saturday.

“All started over a pork pie apparently!” the tweet added.

Chris Sowden, steward at The Harold Club, told The Daily Telegraph newspaper: “It all started with a water pistol then a pork pie got thrown.

“It was completely out of control and by the end about 30 to 40 guests had got involved. I've worked here for 14 years and I've never seen anything like it.”

A West Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said the situation had been “quickly brought under control”.

“Two arrests were made for assault, with those arrested being bailed pending further inquiries. Another person was arrested for a public order matter and has been given a fixed penalty,” she added.

The Harold Club was founded in 1883 to serve as “a working men's club of the better sort”, according to its website.
