A viewer took video when a fight broke out at Publix in Temple Terrace.

Jessica Jordan was at Publix, and grabbed her camera phone when the fight broke out.

Jordan said the fight started when an older gentleman was being loud, obnoxious, and rude to deli employees.  Other shoppers took offense and exchanged words with him.

The viral video shows it ended in a group brawl with people being chased around the deli and out of the store.

Publix released an official statement: 

“An altercation occurred involving our customers.  A couple of our associates placed themselves in harm’s way attempting to break it up.  Fortunately, no injuries occurred.  The safety and well-being of our associates and customers is our first priority.  We’re very disappointed the incident escalated as it did, but thankful no one was injured.”
