While the rest of us were toasting a happy new year, Sofia Vergara and her politician fiancé, Nick Loeb, were getting started on a scrappy new year by engaging in some kind of bar brawl in Miami.

We don’t like to tell people how to be (okay, that's kind of a lie), but it’s possible there were some unfortunate geographical choices made that brought the whole thing on.

Seems that after the 'Modern Family' star was done hosting a midnight countdown at The Delano, a local hotel, she and her betrothed decided to move the festivities to a nightclub party hosted by Chris Paciello -- who just happens to be a guy Vergara dated back in the '90s.

You see where this is going.

A witness reported, “Nick seemed tense around Chris, who was hosting [the couple] in the VIP section, even though he and Sofia are just friends. In the early hours, Nick and Sofia were arguing before he got into a dispute with somebody at a neighboring table.”

Then there was apparently pushing and shoving and when Vergara stepped in to calm things down, somehow she was shoved and her dress was pulled down or ripped -- which exposed her considerable rack to everyone in attendance.

Making us sad that we weren’t among them.

Finally, Loeb was "escorted from the club" by security (that's a highfalutin way of saying "bouncers tossed his rowdy ass out") and Vergara joined him on the outside. And while witnesses say the fight wasn’t Sofia’s fault, she did manage to embarrass her 20-year-old son Manolo so much that he left early as well.

Pictorial evidence of the wardrobe malfunction has yet to surface, which is kind of a surprise. It's not like she's shy about these things.
