I will never forget my first work Christmas party.

It was in Grand Rapids when I worked at a country radio station, and one female co-worker at the party got so out of hand that one of the bosses had to drive her home after having a few too many glasses of red wine.

An incident happened at a company Christmas party in Traverse City recently and got so out of hand that police had to be called to break up a very unusual fight.

The Grinch And A Reinder Fight At Michigan Company Christmas Party

A Michigan man dressed as the Grinch for a company holiday party is likely out of a job after getting into a fight with a reindeer. Up Live North reports that Traverse City Police were called to Hotel Indigo on Friday night for a fight that had broken out.

How Did The Fight Start?

Before I even read the story my first thought was that alcohol had to be involved and it turns out I was right.

Police say they believe that alcohol was a factor in the fight between a 30-year-old man dressed as a reindeer who was defending himself against a 30-year-old man dressed as the Grinch.

The Grinch was allegedly punching the reindeer and was arrested for assault.

Could you imagine being a co-worker watching this go down? Or checking into the hotel for a relaxing weekend and seeing an epic Christmas character fight?

I have so many questions about this fight.

  • What was the fight about?
  • What was the Grinch drinking?
  • Did the Grinch have his makeup on for his mug shot?

I can't find any pictures or video from the fight but if I find anything, I will post it here.
