LEXINGTON, KY - Lexington Police call a violent night after UK's homecoming game pandemonium. Police say at least 5 people were stabbed at a downtown bar, then 6 people assaulted at a popular restaurant near campus.
Police say the first incident started at the downtown Blue Agave Cantina and Loft Nightclub on Short Street. Investigators say an out of town frat who had come on a bus were part of the chaos that led to 5-6 males being stabbed inside.
Police say one man was stabbed in the chest. Several were taken to UK hospital.
Investigators say that group may have left the first scene, continuing on to the popular late night eatery Tolly Ho. That's where witnesses tell LEX 18 News a riot ensued of at least 150 people. Witnesses say people were climbing on cars, swinging chairs and blood was everywhere.
Police tell us some of the employees who work at Tolly Ho were assaulted. In all, 6 were injured. So far police have arrested two, with more arrests possible.
