Up to eight people in fight over cooked chicken at Lincoln market
Up to eight people were involved in a street brawl that erupted after a man stole a chicken from a Lincoln butcher.
The afternoon fight broke out yesterday at Lincoln Central Market, off Sincil Street.
It flared up when a man took a bite out of a cooked chicken without paying.
A security guard suffered a minor head wound as police were called to the scene.
Officers, who were alerted at around 3.30pm, were told the fight escalated quickly after an initial scuffle involving two drunk men.
A 38-year-old Lincoln man was arrested for being drunk and disorderly.
