In April of 1943 The Evening Post ran a brief item in the news about a young man who'd been hauled before the magistrate on charges of being drunk and disorderly following a disturbance in town the previous Saturday evening. Yeah right. What had actually happened was a full-on brawl between a thousand kiwi and American soldiers, the latter of course being famously overpaid, oversexed and over here. The legendary "Battle of Manners Street", which would be a front page sensation today, never made the papers thanks to strict wartime censorship, but rumours of the riot and its causes circulated for weeks.
