Charlottetown Police Services

A Charlottetown man sour after losing an arm-wrestling competition to a woman may face charges after his reaction caused what police described as a “large brawl.”

Police are continuing to investigate the brawl that broke out on Kent Street near Starbucks at approximately 10:54 p.m. Thursday.

“Charges will be laid against a couple of individuals,” said Charlottetown Police Sgt. Walter Vessey, adding that police are still in the process of obtaining statements from witnesses.

The origin of the brawl began inside Pizza Brothers restaurant on Kent Street.

Vessey said a man and woman had been arm wrestling inside the restaurant.

“Apparently, the girl won and the guy took exception,” said Vessey.

The man later confronted the woman outside on Kent Street close to Starbucks, said Vessey.

“He became physical with her,” he said. “There was a crowd around that took exception and jumped him.”

Vessey added at least four to five individuals were involved.

Police have also interviewed several witnesses who were not involved.

The woman suffered superficial injuries while the man, 37, was transported to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Charlottetown with non-life-threatening injuries.

Officers also arrested a 19-year-old city man at the scene.

Organizations: Starbucks, Queen Elizabeth Hospital

Geographic location: Charlottetown, Kent Street

    As a transplanted islander I have to thank this man and many of the previous commentators, I needed a good laugh.

    This is hilarious. Please release this guy's name. That would be punishment enough. This guy will never live this down. Not the fact that he lost to woman in arm wrestling, as that happens all the time. But the fact that he tried to fight her afteward. What a knight in shining armor this clown is.

    He blew it. You lose to a girl in an arm wrestling competition, then you talk sweet to her afterwards, letting her know you're confident in your masculinity. No girl can resist that. That could have been the greatest wedding story ever told.

    That certainly gave me my laugh for the day. Congrats to the woman and I'm glad bystanders came to help her. I don't know how this so-called man is going to be able to explain to anyone how he got injured and why. And I don't know how anyone is going to be able to keep from laughing when they find out the reason.

    Way to go girl..Seems to be a little strange ; arm wrestling in a pizza restaurant. lucky for him; the guys outside stepped in or she might of seriously hurt him. Next time there is an arm wrestling competition ; he should enter the under 12 girls .

    The only charge should be of the one who got physical with her in the parking lot. Kudos to the one who came to the woman's defence......

    Two things to say. First. Congrats to the woman for winning. Second. Dude, hide your head in shame and bow out gracefully. See what happens when your ego gets the best of you.

      Yes, congrats to her for winning, but why should he hang his head in shame? Fact is, not every man is stronger or better at arm wrestling than every woman. The times they are a-changing, and some of us get tired of always letting the guys win at everything to protect their fragile egos.
