Who knew an Australian darts tournament could end in such mayhem?
A Darts Challenge Invitational between Simon “The Wizard” Whitlock and world champion “Mighty” Michael van Gerwen was forced to a hault when fans began to run riot.
Video footage shows chairs and tables being flung onto the stage – predominantly by a group of revelers in fancy dress.

Obviously there were too many Oompa Loompas and men in 90s throwback Hawaiian shirts at the event.
Reportedly over 40 people were ejected from Etihad Stadium in Melbourne for causing the ruckus.
Watch the crazy footage below caught by a spectator in the crowd.
