Reports of shots being fired came in following the fight at what appears to be a park party, documented on YouTube in a video with more than 1,150 views called “Frenchman’s Fight.”

The video shows a young man losing a fight, being pummeled and falling to the ground while dozens of other young people cheer the two combatants on.

The man who took the video, and did not want to be identified by anything other than the name “Jesse” said he stopped recording moments before the gunshots began.

“I just ran away,” said Jesse.

Nicole Fuss said she is thankful police are increasing their patrols in the area, and that she has smelled marijuana walking into the park. “Not appropriate,” she said.

“It’s disappointing, really disappointing,” said her husband, Freddy Fuss.

Clark County police officials said one person was arrested Thursday night for DUI charges, but more arrests may follow.
