Fight clubs used to be a thing of the past.
There were plenty of them hosted in suspicious bars and plenty of other areas where people could organize prize fights for massive sums of money.
Audiences present in most fighting clubs are not just there for entertainment.
Most of them are in attendance because they bet on one of the participants.
Winners and the people who bet on them make hundreds or even thousands of dollars in such events.
It seems like some places still have such clubs running discreetly.
While you could expect people to organize fights in alleys, backyards, and basements, the last place anybody imagines a fight club is an assisted living facility.
Surprisingly, police discovered it in North Carolina and arrested the people who organized it.
As you would expect, the story was all over the internet and on local television channels.
Some people thought they were getting exaggerated versions of the real story, but when multiple sources started to share the news, they realized that it was indeed authentic.
Trouble In Danby House
News reports from several well-reputed sources claimed that police arrested three individuals responsible for making patients fight inside one of the facility rooms.
They would let them loose and would not intervene while the patients beat each other to a pulp.
To make matters worse, the staffers would film these fights and share it with their friends.
Sadly, most of the people who viewed these videos found them entertaining rather than showing any remorse for elderly patients.
None of them reported these incidents to the authority.
Fortunately, however, an individual, who the news channels did not identify, mustered up the courage to alert the local police about this fight club.
Officers arrived at the assisted living facility, named Danby house, within minutes, and began investigating it immediately.
They did not have to dig too much as a few minutes of questioning was enough to intimidate the staffers and make them open up about their crimes.
