Seven people were arraigned on riot and assault charges Monday for their roles in a vicious turf battle at a Sikh temple in Queens.Apparently the fight had something to do with opening the membership rolls. The article doesn't say how much damage was done, but notes that "at least one cop was injured" attempting to break it up and make arrests. I'm sure there will be calls from NYC politicians for sword and cricket bat control.
