Following a fight that broke out at an office Christmas party last year, six employees at the Men's Central Jail will be fired, reports KTLA.The men were "part of a gang like clique, which included a three-fingered hand sign," according to KTLA. The fight occurred in the parking lot at Quiet Cannon Restaurant, where about 100 workers had gathered to celebrate the holidays.

The firings may be the largest disciplinary actions in the history of the department.
