A BRAWL erupted in a queue outside a whisky shop after punters got into an argument over who was first.
Dozens waited overnight for rare bottles of Springbank scotch before several latecomers pushed in as the shop opened.
The fracas saw whisky fans in a slanging match and a man was later thrown out of the shop in Marylebone, London.
A crowd had queued outside Cadenhead’s Whisky to bag a £60 limited edition single malt – with proceeds donated to Ukraine.
Police arrested a man for breach of the peace.
A whisky fan said: “It was pretty ugly, we were immediately behind the group who pushed in and watched it play out.

“Police turned up twice, second time to physically eject one of them from the shop, which turned into an arrest in the street.
“Nobody had got in for about 40 minutes while those guys refused to budge.
“The staff held their nerve well, given the circumstances.”
Just 500 bottles of the Ukraine charity bottle, in vibrant blue and yellow colours, were released from the Springbank distillery.
