(Scroll down for video) A fight between a brother and sister quickly turned violent, and eleven family members were arrested.

The 21-year-old woman of Taiwan, who was identified as Lin, had a confrontation with her younger brother over their cat.

When the argument got out of control the brother called his cousin to get involved. In return the sister called her boyfriend for support.

Lin’s boyfriend allegedly attacked her brother, punching him in the face. After seeing the man being attacked, his cousin grabbed a hammer and attacked the boyfriend.

When the fight spiraled out of control Lin called the police. However, by the time police arrived, the fight had erupted into a physical brawl involving more than ten family members and the boyfriend, who were all throwing punches at one another.

Overwhelmed, the police had no choice but to fire shots in the air to calm things down. Several people were injured in the fight.

More police officers arrived shortly thereafter. Finally, after getting the situation under control, eleven people were taken into custody.

Lin and her boyfriend were freed after being questioned by police. However, they refused to talk about the fight as they left with a taxi.

All family members were eventually freed as no one wanted to press charges against the other.
