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?

    1. Bruce says:

      “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.

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

    2. Jersey Dave says:

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

    3. Bill says:

      They are his Facebook “friends”.

    4. Tim says:

      Its called gang life….

  3. Pull up your pants you moron says:

    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.

  4. Alpha Kenny Juan says:

    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.

    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!

    1. Bruce Brinkmann says:

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

    2. overthecoastline says:

      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.

  6. Fluidizer says:

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

  7. Carl Curmudgeon says:

    I hope they prosecute that guy.

    I nearly broke my foot after the eleventh kick…

  8. Al-CIAda says:

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

    1. overthecoastline says:

      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

  9. stoptouchingthatmabel says:

    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.

  13. alex says:

  14. Ralph Gizzip says:

    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.

    1. I iz collige edjamacated says:

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

  15. Meme Murphy says:

    Is it me or are lots of people somewhat stupid?

  16. Ken says:

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

    1. David says:

      You’e thinking of WEST Hollywood. Completely different.

  17. Dusty says:

    Another Obamaville. They are springing up more and more.

  18. Yeah You Know It says:

    OWS Hollywood!!!

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

    1. overthecoastline says:

      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.

  24. Lilly says:

    The Left’s latest fad of citizens hiding criminals when faced with police investigations will lead to Mexico cartels. They will embolden gangs who will attack witnesses who do not keep silence when ordered. It will lead to mass murder. Stop being a mindless follower. Criminals belong in jail!

  25. phillysmart says:

    Guaranteed black or hispanic….the country is devolving into anarchy …get your guns and supplies ready because it won’t be pretty before it is fixed…Obama and the democrats are orchestrating it…the police neither have the will or political courage to restore order…it will be like the old west

  26. Reality says:

    Did you mean feral black males/females?The “descriptions” would indicate so.

  27. morgana99 says:

    i bet there were drugs involved and i bet those drugs were alcohol and alcohol.

    Sounds like some breeders are not going to pass on their seed. Thank God.

    Anything goes in today’s California. It has become a land of crime, chaos, and anarchy. However, the big one is coming and will take it all away.

  31. Peajaye says:

    99 people beating up on 1 defenseless guy? Is this the 99% we’ve been hearing so much about?

  32. Karl Stalin says:

    Very bizarre blog….

  33. Alice Ramirez says:

    I was SOOO disappointed to see no video. I think I’ll try to find it on You-Tube. CBS local, you REALLY fell down on the job!

  34. Alice Ramirez says:
