Spaghetti Dinner Leads To Full-Blown Brawl On NYC Subway Train

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Who thought that eating spaghetti on a packed subway car could cause such problems?

Well, it did. A video posted on YouTube shows a woman riding on a crowded subway train eating spaghetti from a styrofoam container.

Now, there is a code among straphangers that eating on the train is just plain rude. But so is drinking, listening to loud music, talking loudly, etc. It is certainly annoying but a sad reality for those using mass transit in our city.

Most times the offending party will just get dirty looks. However, sometimes someone will speak up.

Like in the case of the passenger sitting across from her spaghetti-eating nemesis in the above-mentioned video.

The details of the incident are scant: There is no date, nor mention of location and subway line. All we have to go on is what is seen in the video--and let's just say, it's not pretty.

All hell breaks loose after a passenger is heard saying, "What kind of animals eat on the train?"

Oh boy. Watch for yourself and let us know if a situation like this has ever happened to you.
