According to police reports, all available Boardman Police Department units were dispatched to the restaurant Quaker Steak & Lube just before 8 p.m. Monday in reference to a large fight involving around 20 people. Reports state the people were involved in a verbal argument with each other as well as staff.
When police arrived at the scene, they noted “a large melee” in the dining room and patio area of the business. Management informed officers that the customers began arguing after their orders were taking too long.
