Rowdy Dad Kicked Off Queen Mary 2

Think nothing exciting ever happens on a Cunard cruise ship? Think again. A British paper is reporting that a fight broke out this week between passengers on the line's famed Queen Mary 2, prompting officials to kick a 32-year-old father off the ship.

Britain's Daily Mirror says Anthony McNamara of Essex, England -- dubbed the "fight dad" by the tabloid -- had to leave his nine-year-old daughter on board with his parents after the line told him to pack it up and go home. McNamara, who admits to being involved in the fight, had to find his own way back from the British Virgin Islands, where the ship was sailing, the paper says.

There are scant details on the cause of the fight, but McNamara tells the Mirror he was only defending himself. "I was the victim and for that I was thrown off the ship," the paper quoted him as saying.

An official from Cunard would only tell the paper that two passengers were "disembarked" and that the incident was being investigated.
