Four men are facing charges after authorities say a brawl broke out at a Joliet Applebee's.

Investigators say the weekend fight involved two groups of people who were throwing beer bottles, plates and bar stools inside the eatery.

Cmdr. Al Roechner told The (Joliet) Herald-News that Saturday's fight broke out after both groups of men "exchanged racial remarks" and one man smashed a bottle on the head of another customer.

The four are charged with battery and disorderly conduct.
