Brawl Breaks Out at Glasgow University Lecture [Video]

Anarchy descended upon a lecture at the University of Glasgow yesterday, with two individuals fighting during the class. A lecture theatre isn’t normally the stomping ground for a fight, but convention was seemingly thrown out the window on this occasion. The Chemistry lecture was taking place at Glasgow University’s Gilbert Scott Building – specifically in Bute Hall. The brawl was caught on camera, with phone footage capturing the brawl taking place. See the video below to take a look.




A spokesperson for the University of Glasgow stated that the two individuals involved were not students at the University. Given Bute Hall’s location – in the Gilbert Scott building – it is far from unheard of to get external watchers in a lecture. The Gilbert Scott building is one of the main buildings on campus, and is often frequented by the local public and tourists alike. Therefore, while a brawl is far from customary, students are often joined by members of the public.

The lecture in question started at 3pm. The two men are believed to have started brawling around thirty minutes in. The spokesperson for Glasgow provided their account of the lecture – mentioning the duo had gained access to the lecture, where they became ‘disruptive’. The men were eventually escorted away from the campus, following the ruckus. Commotions like these are a rarity – especially in the confines of a lecture theatre!




Well, this just goes to show you never quite know what is going to happen in a lecture. A Chemistry lecture rarely ends up like this… Click the link below to see more news from the University of Glasgow!
