Mayhem broke out on an NJ Transit train Wednesday evening, and a "brawl" involving younger passengers was caught on video before the passengers were told to leave the train.
The passengers involved in the melee reportedly were en route to a concert at the PNC Arts Center in Holmdel, according to News12. The band 311 performed at the Arts Center on Wednesday night.
In a video captured during the incident, the train in question appears to be substantially overcrowded. One rider is seen squeezed in the overhead luggage rack, while others are standing in the aisles and shoving each other:
