U.S. Open Fight -- Who's At Fault?!

9/3/2010 1:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

You gotta watch this video of an insane fight that broke out at the U.S. Open yesterday.

** warning -- the footage contains explicit language **


Here's what's clear:

-- The young man is a loudmouth
-- The woman clearly incites the young dude by slapping him in the face
-- The old man further incites the dude by aggressively approaching the dude and kicking a can

So we ask ...

Perfect situation where EVERYONE was in the wrong. But only ONE handled it right. The young guy. If the young guy was obnoxiously loud, then summons security to handle it. It's THEIR job. Being that it unfolded the way it did, I COMMEND the young guy for not slapping the woman back. Amazing restraint. As far as the old man, he deserved to be pushed down every step in the arena. Kuddos to the young guy!

The young guy didn't get physical until the woman and old man got aggressive with him. Dude's in the clear, and the old guy deserved it.

It's a wonder to me that the poll results are so close. It's not the old guy's "fault" because he ws not initially involved but the fact that people are ven calling this "close" between the young dude and the old woman is appaling to me. They assaulted him. The old couple were both primary aggressors. It is crystal clear. He shoudl get a lawyer. I expect this to be announced. I certainly wouldn't want to let it stand as anythign else given the video is all over the internet. And if it has been edited to remove another asssault on him by the couple as has been suggested here - then it's even worse. He could argue the video was edited to make him look bad when he was the victim.

Dude - file a police complaint accusing both old people of assault. Get a lawyer to protect your reputation.

I don't think yelling helps but your restraint shoudl be commended. It's unfathomable that people can vote you anywhere near 40% responsible. And BTW - the video only started after the argument got out of hand. WHy was that woman over at his seat yelling at him? There is no excuse. If it has to get to that level - get security.

Although the young man was being a total a-hole, he was only talking (they should have ignored him and went on about their business).

- The woman had should not have put her hands on him
- The old man should have left him alone, he was already sitting in his seat when the old man came over being aggressive

Where was security? Seems like they could have been there faster and it would have prevented the escalation of events.

That FAT SLOB HAG COW WOMAN started it by smacking the young guy in the face. And he never hit her back. He let it slide and laughed it off. If a man hit a woman like that he'd be in jail. It's such a friggin double standard. Then the HER FAT OLF FATHER goes up and sucker punches him and grabs him and it's his own fault he fell ad he had the young guy off balance and he simply tried to get the Elephant off of him. The young guy was not wrong in any way.

The young dude then gets attacked by all the other men for simply pushing the charging female elephant away after she attacked him a second time. It's ridiculous. Those TWO BLOBS should be charged for ASSAULTING him three times and also charged for being DISGUSTINGLY OBESE.
How dare she wear a tank top... That PIG

TMZ, you've answered your own question:
--The woman clearly incites the young dude
-- The old man further incites the dude

Yeah, the guy was a loudmouth, but the physical violence was perpetrated by the woman and the old man. The video makes it very clear.
The "young dude" did nothing more than run his mouth.

Is that old man okay? Falling down a flight of stadium seats seems like an easy way to break a few ribs.. especially for an old guy like him. You know what though? He's the one who started getting physical, so **** him. The young guy was being a douche though...

If that old ****er doesn't get arrested for assault, there's something severely wrong with the system.

The young punk was a douche but the woman and old man took it to a physical (which I thought in this country, meant illegal)level. They should have all been kicked out and the old man & woman, arrested.

They young guy should have been kicked out. Obviously he was running his mouth to begin with and he was there just because he had money on the game. Everyone else was there to enjoy the game. What a loser! They young guy was not defending himself he was running his mouth and verbally abusing the older couple. Good job Older couple for putting him in his place. He needs parents obviously to show him how to respect everyone in the audience and the players. And no more STUPID lawsuits.
