Carlton from 'Fresh Prince'

BREAKS UP Barbershop Brawl

8/5/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Alfonso Ribeiro -- aka Carlton on "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" -- laid down the law this week inside an L.A. barbershop ... jumping into action MID-HAIRCUT to break up an expletive-laced brawlfest.

Sources tell TMZ, the fight broke out between two employees at "In the Cuts" in Hollywood -- after a disagreement over which should be turned up louder ... the TV or the radio.

It gets physical pretty quickly -- but Alfonso doesn't miss a beat ... reaching into the frame with his badass gold-watched arm to pull the two guys apart, saying, "Let go, let go."

Eventually, the tempers cooled off -- but we're told Al was so shaken by the ordeal ... he didn't even finish his haircut. The barbershop had no comment. Calls to Alfonso have not been returned.

Big deal. He didn't do much. One of several guys that broke it up.

Two things about this:

1. How is it that some people's first reaction in a tense situation is to pull out their camera phone?

2. Two guys would rather fight and lose their jobs instead of compromising.

It's like a microcosm of the USA.

Nothing but a bunch of animals. More than 1 black is trouble.
===========================================================
WOW you're a real racist POS there Kathy. I like this new feature where you can click on the person's name and you see all their comments...and ALL of your comments are race related. You actually have the nerve to tell people to loo in the mirror..WOW! Calling a group of people animals and more than one is too many??? I guess no other groups of people ever get into fights eh? As I say, you're a pathetic loser that sits there calling people names and I'll bet you're the first person to accuse someone of "using the race card" because let's face it there are no real racist out there are there, just a bunch of "animals"

If the owner is smart he'll fire the employees ASAP. I don't know how many barber shops would do well if they have a reputation for violence inside the premises. I wouldn't go.
