In what can only be described as a most excellent street brawl, a rather rowdy holiday melee of pissed drunk men in Santa outfits ensued while bystanders took watch.
NEW YORK CITY (INTELLIHUB) — In true gladiatorial spirit, fighters dressed in Santa suits took to the snow-covered street in front of some random restaurant after attending the Santa Con 2013 nearby.
No one is sure what started the 8 man melee–however, alcohol is likely to blame.
UPI reported, “Thousands of Santa suit-clad revelers took to the streets in New York to celebrate the Santa Con pub crawl, which saw police patrolling for the first time.
New Yorkers dressed as Santa, elves and even pandas Saturday during the annual festivities in Manhattan and Brooklyn, the New York Daily News reported.
Police kept on eye on things for the first time this year after residents complained of revelers urinating and vomiting in the street last year, the New York Post reported.
“I think it’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen,” said Greg Stone of Oceanside, Long Island. “It’s an excuse for white kids to come to the city from the suburbs and drink.”
The men went round and round for some time. At one point one of them was slammed into a pole and a car!
“That was a good fight”, said one man near the camera after the confrontation was over.
After the scuffle one man kept yelling to his opponents, “You Still want it?”, begging for more.
