    I watched the video but "muted" so I heard nothing, bad enough just watching. I always wonder if people like this are embarassed the following day, my guess is probably not.

    I have knowledge of the entire fight but have been asked not to share...I know why they fought and who "they" are and what happened to the "guests'"
    Crazy crap at 12:30am or so.

    It was right in the Divi Bar. It happened after 12:30am or so. There are always 2 security guards earlier but as far as I know there was only one there when holy hell broke out but but she could not do anything and did nothing. The bartender who tried to help is a great guy and probably only 5 feet tall and 120 lbs lbs and could not break it up despite trying. I think he was looking for help at 1st realized there was nothing there and did his best....poor guy!

    The quote is NOT accurate. Some were Americans but some not and that is all your getting out of me.

    What a shame. Adults acting like that. No class at all.

    That should not be the bartender's responsibility. Security should be available for him to call when needed.

    I 100% agree. They really dropped the ball on the lack of security. I think its one area many of the hotels are lacking in. Many of the security guards I have seen through the years in Aruba would struggle breaking up that fight even if there were a number on board...being small and breaking up fights between grown drunk men is a dangerous business.

    It was an odd time at the Ritz...any earlier they would have had 4 or 5 LARGE men, one of which is a former Aruba strongman competition winner, at the front door whose job it is to great customers but I am 99% sure they would have broken it up if they were there- again not their job though.

    I am in touch with dozens of Hotel employees- the ritz included and word travels fast when things like this happen in Aruba. My sources say anyone who was staying at the Ritz who was involved in the fight was removed the following morning and rightfully so!
