JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Action News has obtained new video of a massive brawl at Jacksonville Beach. Police say they were forced to shut down parts of the beach when a fight got out of hand.

Police tell Action News several smaller fights quickly escalated and became a large brawl involving about 30 people.

Action News obtained video posted on Facebook of the brawl at the Sea Walk Pavilion. It shows several men throwing a person to the ground, then stomping on the victim repeatedly.

Crowds of people are also seen running away from the violence.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, Neptune Beach and Atlantic Beach police were called to assist Jacksonville Beach Police from First to Third streets and all the way out to the boardwalk for several hours after the violence.

Police tell Action News no serious injuries were reported. No arrests have been made.

You can see the full Facebook video obtained by Action News attached to this web story, a warning it depicts a very violent attack.

Their parents don't care. Where are they? It's sad this what they learn at home. I teach my kids fishing, hunting, camping & my trade. You ever no why only black people know how to cook crack? That's what's passed down to them. Nothing's gonna change. I hate being this way. But be white & go to some of the public schools here in jax. If you can't see or get it then you don't want to.

Oh not to mention the poor blonde girl that was almost raped by that giant navy black guy right in the middle of the street where that fight broke out a few weeks back. Seeing a trend anyone??.??

Absolutely appalling. I've lived here my whole life and never have I seen such disgust. Hate to say it but watch the video and you will see where the problem comes from. Not one white person. Maybe because all these jiggaboos feel like the beach is a vacation and what goes on here stays here. Hey guess what just because its a weekend and you drove 30 minutes out of the f-ing hood doesn't mean your all of a sudden somewhere that rules and laws don't abide. Just goes to show how classy they really are. Mayor Alvin Brown please plead with the citizens of Jacksonville to please stop trashing your most valuable tourist area. Face it.... Nothing to do downtown because they already ruined everything there.

There was ONE factor that occurred that night that played a LARGER part to these 'restless animals' going berserk...and that was the FULL MOON. Everyone knows what kind of effect the full moon has on human behavior. Ask any cop, they can tell you..people tend to drink too much,then they get really stupid acting. Not to minimalize this 'riot' amongst these idiots...But police should have KNOWN they needed to be more diligent when they have celebrations on a full moon. And before you all call me crazy or whatever...think about it. Our body is 50 to 75% water. And if the moon can cause the ocean tides with its gravitational 'pull', what do you think it does to your body and brain fluids? Then add alcohol or drugs, POW. ZAP. ZONK!

There were an extremely large number of black youths present at the beach yesterday - not families but, unsupervised youths. And what took place was disgusting. The reporting failed to mention that fact both on-line and on the TV report. The police presence needs to be extreme (instead of youths) so the the law abiding citizens feel very comfortable and the thugs feel very uncomfortable - to the point to where the thugs don't even want to go to the beach. With all due respect, the Jax Beach police chief's claim that he had an adequate police presence is a totally inaccurate assessment or the brawl would have never broken out in the first place. Drastic measures must be taken so that the law abiding can take back the beach before the thugs completely take over.

I listen to the news every night, always the same thing---murder, rape, vehicle accidents, and other assorted stuff. the only common factor is that it is black killing black--mostly uneducated, drug related---oh well--no sense getting worked up over NOTHING

@Flyflnn, you are so right and said exactly and then some what I wanted to say! They need to stop acting like animals. The blacks have been on the plantation for years! The demoRATS have seen to that! Have more children and we will give you more food, housing and child care....don't worry about the daddies just have more babies!! Tax payers wake the f7.& up!! Demand that if you breed'em you will feed'em, and NOT with tax payers money either. If the starve oh well!! Think about it next time you spread your legs without taking responsibility (condoms, birth control IUD) whatever it takes but it is NOT the damn tax payers responsibility to pay for your piece of a$$!!!! Stop f-ing like f-ing animals and act like you're human! If you have a damn child then it is your responsibility to take care of the damn child and that means FEED, CLOTHING and SHELTERING that child WITHOUT the tax payers dime!!

You want to be treated as equal then do your part! Speak English. Use Birth Control. Get a job...hell, get two. Name your kids a normal name. Be a Father figure. Be a Mother figure. Get a grip on your kids. Put more pride into your house than your car. Teach your kids sports. Read to your children. Have dinner together. Pull your pants up. shorts do not go to your ankles (those are capris, and women wear those) What I see here are animals escaping from the zoo and all the other animals are screaming while the one rejected animal gets pounced on and beat by all the other animals. If our government does not stop this: property values will decrease, tourism will go away, these bars and restaurants will go away, people are going to get hurt, locals with money will stay home. how many of these "black people" do you think actually went into any store at the beach and purchased a shirt, a pitcher of beer, a dozen oysters, Ritas italian ice..............any? I didnt think so! JAX BEACH BETTER DO SOMETHING!!!!! IF YOU ARE A BUSINESS DO NOT LET THEM IN. THEN JAX BEACH PD DO YOUR PART AND DONT LET THEM LOITER. AT THIS POINT THERE IS NOTHING FOR THEM TO DO BESIDES GO TO THE BEACH WHERE THEY WILL BE IN A PACK.....AT THIS POINT YOU KEEP BOTHERING THEM WITH EVERY LAW IN THE BOOK.........THEY WILL THEN LEAVE! I am very surprised there was not a shot fired.....if it was at night there probably would have been.
