THERE are many things you’re likely to see on your way home from a night out on the town on a Saturday: chips strewn on the floor, someone being sick and perhaps a fight.But people don’t usually strip off in preparation for a punch-up — unlike one woman spotted in Cheltenham last night, as Gloucestershire Live reports.
Community volunteers Cheltenham Guardians, who support the local police in the town centre at weekends, explained the bizarre sight on their Facebook page.
They revealed that a “middle-aged” woman was spotted stripping off in the middle of the street in preparation for a cat fight with another lady who, they later found out, was her best friend.
They wrote on their Facebook page: “Quite often when two angry men square up for a fight one or both may remove a shirt.
“We’re not sure if this is a show of bravado (think strutting peacock) or a desire not to get that Ralph Lauren shirt ripped.
“Imagine our surprise when two middle-aged women squared up for an altercation on the Promenade and one removed her dress and bra before fists flew.“Thankfully Guardians were on hand to restore order to chaos and the bra to its semi-naked owner.
“It turned out that these two fighting hens were best friends. Let’s hope they reflect upon their actions and deal with their differences in a more respectable way next time.”
Yes, hopefully next time the women will keep their clothes on.
Or at least head indoors before they strip off!
