You might want to batten down your chimney and forgo milk and cookies on Christmas Eve, because these Santas aren’t quite in the holiday spirit just yet.
Believe it or not, a group of individuals all decked out in St. Nick suits got themselves into a brawl on New York City street (a snow-covered one, no less) on Saturday night, according to police.
“We’re looking into it,” said NYPD spokesman Sgt. Lee Jones said after the New York Daily News notified them of a video of the fight posted on YouTube. “We don’t have any reported assaults right now. We know about it.”
The donnybrook involved about 10 people at the corner of 17th Street and Third Avenue around 8:15 p.m., Jones told the Daily News. The clip ends with the Santas walking away in groups, with one bellowing to his foes, “You want it, [blank]? You still want it?”
The Daily News speculates that the group may have been connected to SantaCon, an annual ritual featuring Santa-wearing revelers who hit bars in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
SantaCon has drawn complaints from those who say the drunken Santa impersonators end up vomiting and fighting, the Daily News added.
Okay, you can check out the action right here (Warning: Some rough language from the brawling Santas, as well as from cinematographers across the street, but you knew that already):
