Supermarket brawl over cherries descends into chaos

A Melbourne supermarket staff member has been hospitalised after a fight erupted over cherries.

Thanh Thien Springvale Fresh Market Supermarket owner Tung Nguyen said the argument began when two men approached the staff member requesting to buy cherries by the bag.

When the staff member told them they had to pay by kilo instead, a brawl broke out. 

Video of the fight shows the three men, one shirtless, trying to hit each other with makeshift weapons in the fresh produce aisle.

Customers and supermarket staff can be seen desperately trying to hold the men back from each other.

The two customers have been charged over the incident, with the staff member ending up in hospital with a head wound.
