    I got a call yesterday from a fellow wedding photographer yesterday who is down in Cabo for a wedding shoot. It seems Friday night the bridal party went out late to Squid Roe and during their partying three kidnappers (2 of whom were white) attempted to drug and kidnap some of the groomsmen.

    It turned into a brawl with even the bridesmaids slugging it out with the kidnappers. They successfully fought off the kidnappers, but oddly the Mexican police jailed one of the groomsmen for being under the influence of drugs - injected by a kidnapper. It sounds like a very nasty encounter!

    Any Cabo locals see anything in the news about this?
    I'm hearing kidnapping is becoming a real problem in Mexico, but this is going a bit far!

              That is insane!!! Very scary, and I'm glad everyone is OK! I have to say though, it got my adrenaline going when I read the part about the bridesmaids throwing punches as well! I took self-defense before moving to St. Thomas a few years back, and would have fought tooth and nail if anyone tried to mess with me! YIKES!

                People often magnifies actual situations under the effects of alcohol. Here in Cabo like everywhere else in the world at bars with a lot of people, lot of alcohol some times things get out of control and fights occur, I see it more like a common bar fight with a dash of exaggeration.

                  I searched a bit too, but maybe the policia and the club did not want to advertise this kind of event. That's why I wanted to hear from one of the locals about what may have leaked into the local papers.

                  Brian Valiant, also a member here, is my source. He's doing the post-shoot today and will be back here in Washington tomorrow.

                    dinogomez, this was no ordinary bar fight. It was a kidnapping attempt. One of the kidnappers was captured.
