ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A brawl broke out among spectators waiting in line for Casey Anthony trial tickets in Florida.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that two men tried to cut in line early Friday, starting a brawl and shouting match as others in line fought back.

Spectators line up outside the courthouse each morning, hoping to secure seats in the courtroom where 25-year-old Anthony is standing trial in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. Many arrive at the courthouse in the wee hours of the morning to get in line.

The fight broke out as the crowd was moving to a location closer to the courthouse entrance.

Twenty-seven-year-old Jessie Dorris says she was shocked when the men "just cut in front of us."

The fight broke up and there were no arrests.
