CYPRESS, Texas -- Over the weekend, the Whataburger off of Spring Cypress and the Northwest Freeway turned into a "fight club."
Eighteen-year-old Kenneth Enciu was in the middle of the mess. It started in the packed dining room after a Cy-Woods football game on Friday night. Kenneth says it was all over $10.
"He came at my friend and started swinging at him," said Enciu.
That's when Enciu put his food down and swung right back.
"One punch after another that's how it happened," he said. "I didn't really think about it, I just let my anger take control of me."
In an instant, the burger brawl was on.
"Chairs were all over the place, everybody was throwing chairs," he said.
Whataburger employees tried to break it up, but more teenagers joined in. The main fight spilled out into the parking lot where it got even more violent.
"That's when everyone went crazy," said Enciu.
It wasn't long before Harris County deputies arrived. And the crowd scattered. Fast.
"I see four cops telling everyone to go and everybody was leaving," he said. "There was a mob of people sprinting toward their cars running. Running like no tomorrow."
Enciu says the whole experience was wild. He feels fortunate no one was arrested or badly hurt. His only regret that night is that he didn't trust his gut to go through the drive through.
"Came for a burger and fries and left with a hurt finger," said Enciu.
Whataburger's Corporate Office released this statement in response to Friday's incident:
"We had a large crowd of students at this restaurant following the football game on Friday night. When this altercation began, our management team intervened, cleared out the restaurant and called police. The altercation continued outside but the crowd dispersed when they heard police approaching. We temporarily closed the dining area to clean up the mess left by the incident. We take matters like these seriously, and we are reviewing all of the events from the evening and will take appropriate action as needed."
