On a recent Saturday night, Stoughton police officers were called to a social club on Porter Street. A fight had broken out at a baby shower attended by more than 200 people at Club Luis de Camoes, and the fight escalated into a full brawl in a scene that Stoughton Police Executive Officer Robert Devine later described as “incredible chaos.”
