DETROIT – A viral video recorded Saturday night captured Detroit police officers in a massive brawl in Greektown.
The video shows officers approach a man in a Detroit Tigers’ shirt, who appeared to be speaking to them when an officer struck him in the face, knocking him to the ground. A large-scale brawl started with another man shortly after.
It is unclear the circumstances that led to either altercation.
