VIDEO: Santas Brawl Near Union Square
A group of men, believed to be participating in SantaCon, was captured on video throwing blows at the corner of 17th St. and Third Avenue in Manhattan Saturday night.
The Daily News notified cops of the video posted on YouTube. NYPD spokesman Sgt. Lee Jones said later, "We're looking into it. We don't have any reported assaults right now. We know about it."
SantaCon is an annual event where those infused with the Christmas spirit don Santa outfits and then participate in a pub crawl.
Roughly eight Santas were involved in the rumble.
