    Chairman: Small Fight At Auto Show 'No Big Deal'

    Show Forced To Close Half-Hour Early, Station Reports
    Posted: 12:43 a.m. EST January 12, 2003

    A small fight near one of the displays during the first day of public viewing at the 2003 North American International Auto Show reportedly shut down the show a half-hour earlier than the scheduled closing.

    Local 4 reported that police were called to the Cobo Arena around 9:25 p.m. after reports of a fight near one of the show's display.

    A witness told Local 4 that there were several small fights inside the arena and outside in the lobby area.

    Bill Demmer, chairman of the North American International Auto Show, confirmed that there was a small fight, but said it was "no big deal" and that most of the patrons at the show didn't even know anything was out of the ordinary.

    Local 4 reported there had been one arrest, but no one was injured.

    Demmer said the auto show is a safe place for visitors.

    Two years ago, police were called to Cobo Arena because of a fight during the 2001 auto show. Six men were arrested during what many described as a chaotic situation. Police said they were able to bring the scene quickly under control.

    I know a few people who were at the Auto show that night and heard nothing about it until the next day. I guess it was made to be alot more then what it really was.

    Okay, does the Cien and HY Wire remind anyone else here of the cars in Minority Report? My first thought, really. Nice, though.
