Surveillance video from the restaurant showed a big group of patrons actively fighting which led to the arrest of a 27-year-old Richard Velez, of Middleboro in connection to the assault.

Velez is charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, assault using a dangerous weapon, carrying a dangerous weapon and disturbing the peace, according to police.

The Investigation is ongoing and more charges may be filed against other patrons.
