NATICK - Two Boston-area moms are being summoned to court after police say they got into a fistfight at Chuck E. Cheese Saturday when one woman's son "hogged" an arcade game from the other's 9-year-old birthday boy.

Catherine Aliaga, 38, and Tarsha Williams, 33, will be charged with simple assault and battery after they started shouting and scuffling at a celebration for Aliaga's son's birthday.

"Unfortunately, a birthday night out turned into a birthday melee," police Sgt. Paul Thompson said. "I don't even know if they finished their pizza."

Officers responded at 6:50 p.m. to a number of 911 calls, finding Aliaga with red marks on her upper chest, Thompson said.

Aliaga took offense to Williams' 13-year-old son using a basketball game machine for a long time, the sergeant said. Aliaga told her son to be patient while the other boy had his turn with the game.

At one point, Williams' son apparently pushed the boy, who accused him of "hogging" the game.

Aliaga said the other boy was done shooting hoops, and Williams replied, "No, he's not," Thompson said.

"Next thing you know, words were exchanged," and things got physical between the moms with shouts, shoves and pushes, the sergeant said.

"Williams lunged at Aliaga, grabbed her and began to hit her," punching her on the side of her face, Thompson said.

Williams told Aliaga, "the fight was not over and it would continue outside in the parking lot," Thompson said.

Police arrived to find the women in the birthday room.

They sent the women and their children home separately, Thompson said.

Aliaga, of 14 Elliswood St., West Roxbury, and Williams, of 51 Ellington St., Dorchester, will be summoned to court at a later date, the sergeant said.

"We are taking charges out against both of them," he said.

A Chuck E. Cheese manager in Natick referred comment to CEC Entertainment's Texas-based corporate office, which was closed yesterday.

Not surprising - that place is insane. I just took my 4 yr old to a bday party at CCheese 2 weekends ago. They booked 6 or so bdays at the same time. We were herded like cattle. There wasn't enough room in the game area - and the CC employees stay out of that area - probably because they don't want to deal with headaches like miss aliaga and miss williams. The blood pressure goes up after 5 mins in that place.

Obviously no one should end up punching someone else in the side of the face...

damn, you have to land those right in the kisser.
