Hollywood Street Brawl Involving 100 People In Costumes Leaves 1 Man Critical

HOLLYWOOD (CBS) — About 100 Halloween revelers, many in costume, got into a heated brawl early Sunday, with a 27-year-old man taken to the hospital in critical condition, police said.

The fight  occurred near Wilcox Avenue on Hollywood Boulevard about 1:30 a.m., Los Angeles police Sgt. Mark Ro of the Hollywood Station said.

The man, whose name was unavailable, was reportedly kicked in the head until unconscious, Ro said.

Paramedics treating the man at the scene called for police backup, he said.

Getting a description of the attacker wasn’t easy, Ro said.

“Everybody was in costume,” he said. “Friends of the victim were not cooperative.”

Officers tried to also question witnesses uninvolved in the fight, he said.

    “Friends of the victim were not cooperative.”…. None of his friends saw a thing! Were his friends cheering on the thugs or did they just wait patiently for the attacker to get tired and leave?

    • Bruce

      “Friends of the victim were not cooperative” suggests that the assailant(s), the victim, and the victim’s friends were gang members, who will look to settle things on their own rather than cooperate with the authorities.

    • Dominic Carabello

      This RACIST is puking up racist comments in NYC media too…under the name of Peter Chang. I reported him both places…

  • Sara Cofresi

    With friends like that (uncooperative)…who needs enemy’s?

    • Bill

      They are his Facebook “friends”.

    • Tim

      Its called gang life….

    • Jersey Dave

      They think if they “stop snitching” and let their friend die they’re cool. Morons.

        That’s got to be old buddy neutron Jack striving for anarchy again!

  • Pull up your pants you moron

    Very disappointed there’s no video of this. A hundred costumed thugs brawling…what were they wearing, nice clothes? Pulled up pants? That’s a costume for these thugs.

    No doubt, this started with someone dissin’ someone.

  • Alpha Kenny Juan

    If the witnesses want to stay quiet, that’s fine with me; the police can drop the investigation and devote their time to the needs of those of us who cooperate with the police. Then the folks who stay mum when the cops come around can wring their hands and wonder why their neighborhoods suffer from so many unsolved killings and why gangsters operate on their streets with impunity.

  • Cheetahsneverprosper

    At first I thought this story was going to be boring, but then I saw the stock photo of police tape, and… man! It’s like I was right there in the middle of the brawl!

    • Bruce Brinkmann

      I’m tellin Ya. Wow! What coverage, what journalism, what a story, HUH? I was engrossed in all the detail. Fascinating.

    • overthecoastline

      This story raised more questions than it answered. That’s modern liberal journalism for ya. Don’t report any details – – we don’t want anyone to be offended.

    Darwinism at work. Too bad they weren’t armed so this could resolve quicker.

  • Carl Curmudgeon

    I hope they prosecute that guy.

    I nearly broke my foot after the eleventh kick…

  • Al-CIAda

    Aren’t most of these people a bit old to be dressing up? Halloween is for kids.

    • overthecoastline

      You’ve obviously never been to Hollywood. They weren’t dressing up. Stupid clothing is always in fashion here. This incident just happened to take place near Halloween, so I understand your confusion

  • stoptouchingthatmabel

    Was he wearing a “kick me in the head” sign because I can see why they did what they did? This is just another wonderful day interacting with the intelligencia of Hollywood.

    Just remember, Jeff, stereotypes have their basis in reality. There’s a reason, “If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck. It’s a duck.” came into being. And is it really bigotry to call it like you see it?

    The whole premise of “Political Correctness” is that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    • I iz collige edjamacated

      I haven’t really seen a post that makes anywhere near as much sense as yours. Good job!

  • Meme Murphy

    Is it me or are lots of people somewhat stupid?

  • Ken

    Come on; this was Hollywood. Two of the “Queens” wore the same costume. Kicking in heels is a learned art.

    • David

      You’e thinking of WEST Hollywood. Completely different.

  • Dusty

    Another Obamaville. They are springing up more and more.

  • Yeah You Know It

    good comment.

    google “chimpout” for the truth about the black beasts

  • nmwander

    100s of men in custumes fighting each other in Hollywood.
    Sounds like a Sissy-boy Slap Fest to me.

  • Ernaldo T

    A Japanese beat this guy?

    I believe the near future is going to hold a few surprises for you, Sambo….

    OWS Hollywood!!!

    A Kenyan, a Muslim and a Socialist walk into a bar, the bartender says “What will you have Mr. President?”.

    • overthecoastline

      The Kenyan/Muslim/Socialist looks around. “Since my angry Clydesdale of a wife isn’t here, gimme a double cheeseburger and fries”, he says to the bartender.
