    A barista at a Starbucks in Michigan has been told by her employer to remove the heart-shaped tattoo on her hand or resign. Kayla, 27, who only gave her first name, told a media outlet in Michigan that she's had the tattoo for five years and even had it when she was hired. The coffee company says she has 30 days to remove the ink or leave, for good. The tattoo, located above her thumb, is no bigger than a penny.

MYFOXNY.COM - A bench-clearing brawl broke out during an annual charity hockey game between the NYPD and FDNY on Sunday at the Nassau Coliseum.

It all happened in the second period as referees tried to get a one on one fight under control.  

Within minutes, the benches cleared and it escalated into an all out brawl.

The referees’ efforts to mediate the fight proved futile as dozens of firefighters and police officers relentlessly punched and wrestled each other to the ground.

It was 3-3 when the second-period violence broke out.

The game was delayed for 25-minutes as gloves, sticks and trash were picked up off the ice.

Several players were penalized and ejected.

Fans at the event said they have never seen a bench-clearing, cop v.s. firefighter brawl before.

Despite numerous black eyes and bruises, no players appeared to be seriously injured.

The FDNY has beaten the NYPD at the annual event five years in a row.

But on this day, 'New York's Finest' finally snapped their losing streak and won the game 8-5.

Proceeds from the game went to various causes, including the "New York Police and Fire Widows' and Children's Benefit Fund."

Both the police and firefighters declined to comment on the fight.
