Fashion show 911 call: "He has a sword and an axe!"

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Police in Charlotte are using a video uploaded to YouTube to help in their investigation of a large fight that broke out in NoDa early Monday morning.

Charlene Henderson owns NDEMAND at the corner of 28th street and North Davidson. She says she rented out her place to a fashion show with "NC Awards Ball Aftermath". She couldn't believe how it ended.

"I'm still baffled" says Henderson. "My people that were here are just still dumb founded on how it turned out really."

Henderson says the event was going fine until a contestant apparently didn't like a judge's decision. She says that contestant threw a chair. Then, the brawl broke out.

The YouTube video, uploaded on Sunday, shows several people facing off in a large room.

Chairs are thrown back and forth, one woman even hurls a table at several men throwing chairs at her.

She catches a chair one handed, while holding her purse in the other.

As people scramble for cover, a man can be seen entering the room with a blunt object. Several people hold him back while he shouts at a group of people across the room.

Someone else can be seen waving a taser in the air.

WBTV contacted the person who uploaded the video but has not gotten a response.

The 911 call audio released from police reveals a frantic caller asking the dispatcher to get police to the location immediately.

"It's escalating! He has a sword and an axe," the caller tells the dispatcher. "Could you just get the people here?"

The dispatcher tries to calm the man down and gather more information.

"I need to know what the guy with the weapons looks like," the dispatcher says." Once police are dispatched the caller seems to calm down and the call dies out.

Henderson says the fight was an isolated incident and security staff on site were the ones who called police.

The call came in for a large fight on the 600 block of E. 28th Street at 2 a.m., according to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

Police say no report was filed or charges made because no one on scene would cooperate with them.

The video is being used as part of the investigation.

Henderson says she doesn't want the YouTube video defining her business.

"We deal with the elderly. We deal with youth. We have group sessions. We have church activity" she says.

Henderson says the event was "an orderly fashion show. You can't predict what people do. That's the bottom line. I feel sorry for the promoter because he did everything he was supposed to be doing."

According to Henderson, the promoter "had adequate security here. It was an orderly fashion show and it got out of hand because somebody got upset."
