PANAMA CITY — Rival teams of security guards grappled in a stairwell as a business dispute for control over the Trump luxury hotel in Panama mounts.
Cellphone video of the confrontation obtained by The Associated Press shows one of the Trump security officials screaming “Out!” in Spanish as condo owners try to enter a room filled with computer equipment.
Panama City police say they responded to calls about the scuffle.
The minor brawl marks at least the fourth time the police have been called to the property in the last week as part of a bitter fight between the hotel’s owners and Trump Hotels. The owners have sought to fire Trump’s management company, but the Trump Organization has called the termination illegal.
