GLENDALE (CBS) — One man was arrested after a brawl involving more than 100 people broke out at a wedding in Glendale.

Glendale Police officers were called out to a wedding late Saturday night at a banquet hall called the Dream Palace to calm a fight that broke out among more than 100 people, according to the Glendale News-Press.

Witnesses told police they saw several people wielding knives at the party and one man said he was struck on the lip and hit on the head with a chair, the newspaper reported.

One man, 36-year-old Karpis Termendzyan of Van Nuys, was arrested on suspicion of vandalism and battery after allegedly spitting on one officer and trying to elbow two others, according to the News-Press, and later kicked in a rear window of a patrol car. Termendzyan was released Sunday after posting $20,000 bail.

Another man, 22-year-old Spartak Karabedian of Van Nuys, was detained for public drunkenness and released Sunday. Police believe Karabedian, who is on probation for assault with a deadly weapon, started the fight inside the banquet hall, but details about the brawl remain unclear because partygoers refused to talk to police, the News-Press reported.

Most partygoers refused medical treatment and did not want to press any charges.
