DANBURY, Conn. (AP) – Danbury police say a dispute over a karaoke song triggered a brawl at a city restaurant that ended with the arrests of three men.

Police say they were called to Terra Brasilis Restaurant at about 1:30 a.m. Saturday. They say 31-year-old Jefferson Gomez got angry after he thought the karaoke disc jockey skipped the song he wanted to sing.

Officers say bouncers threw Gomez out of the restaurant, but his friend, 25-year-old Marcos DaSilva of Danbury, smashed a beer bottle over the DJ’s head.

Bouncers then threw DaSilva out, but police say the fighting continued outside.

Police say they arrested Gomez after a car chase. He’s charged with reckless driving, breach of peace and other crimes. He posted his $10,000 bail.

DaSilva and another friend of Gomez, Jose Burges, were also arrested.
