200 people took part in a large fight that broke out during a baby shower party, Massachusetts Police said in a statement.

The baby shower party erupted into chaos as bottles and people of all ages flew in a chaotic scene.

"Oh, my God. It was nonstop. When a skirmish started in one corner, we went over to calm the situation and then another would start up somewhere else," a police sergeant said. Daniel McGowan said that "the baby shower turned into a nightmare."

Police in Stoughton, south of Boston, were called to Club Luis De Camoes, which was decorated with balloons and pink tablecloths, to dissolve a little fight in the bar after 11:00 p.m.

Another officer was already working in the social hall as a security guard. Party crashers allegedly started the alcohol fueled fight, which accelerated after a man was sucker punched, Stoughton police chief Robert Devine, said.

"The behavior of the partygoers was terrible," Devine added. "They not only endangered the officers, but their own children were at risk."

The guest of honor’s brother was arrested when he turned over a table after his 6-month-old son was
thrown across the room.

"My brother was tasered in front of me and a police officer pushed him over me," mom-to-be Maria Depina, 22, said. "The police could have done a better job," she added.

Paulo Pires Depina, 24, is scheduled to be arraigned Monday, along with Aderito Lopes DeAndrade, 22, and Patrick Cardoso Lopes, 24, who looked exceptionally happy in his mug shot.

The men, all of Brockton, were charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and assault and battery on an officer. One child under 14 years old, was also arrested on the same charges.
