Opposing lawmakers threw punches and whacked each other with microphones inside the Georgia Parliament Building Friday in a fight over international delegations.

Opposition member Akaki Bobokhidze started the fight when he swore at the ruling coalition in an address about the makeup of international Georgian delegations, reported The Telegraph. Curses and insults were traded, and a few members started throwing punches. Some whipped their fellow lawmakers with microphones they had yanked off the parliament desks.

Video of the brawl shows a number of relatively level-headed members try to stop the violence as others look on or try to get out of the way.
