JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. -- Several police agencies were called to Jacksonville Beach tonight after a large fight broke out.

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 several small fights on the pier snowballed into a massive fight involving at least 30 people.

Nobody was seriously injured. First Street from Beach Bouevard to Sixth Avenue North were closed for several hours as a precaution.

No arrests have been made.

Correction on prior post. Second sentence should read "This has to do with a bunch of adults who have NOT mentally matured enough to be let outside to play on their own without parental supervision." Sorry for leaving out the word 'NOT'. Thank you.

This has nothing to do with race. This has to do with a bunch of adults who have mentally matured enough to be let outside to play on their own without parental supervision. Only the Parents in this case need to be our law enforcement. This is not a one time incident. Only this time they got caught on film. Now I have to question just how hard the Jacksonville Police and Sheriffs' departments are working to catch these individuals. Because while the video we see on TV is fairly quick, I see no reason why this video has not been closely examined by the respective law enforcement offices, mug shots created from such video, and then plastered all over NE Florida so everyone can get a good look at what these people look like. Not only were they fighting, but they were doing it on our dunes in full view of everyone, causing tourist to go elsewhere. Not that we mind down here in beautiful Saint Augustine, as it just brings in more tourist dollars for us. Because if such a thing happened on one of our beaches, you can bet the sheriff's department here would have made sure that the thugs mug shots filled up the first section of the paper until these brainless jerks were caught and behind bars where grownups who act like two year olds belong. I'm sure somewhere there's an empty jail cell waiting for jerks like these people are. Now, JAX PD and Sheriff Departments, if you bother to read the comments in here, then you will know when they show up, you damn well should know what they look like by now, so you know where you need to be in force the next time the thugs show up to further ruin the city that is best known per Capita as the Murder Capital of Florida.

I hate to say "I told ya so", but I have seen worse than this fight destroying Jax Beach for years now. There is no need to even mention race when discussing this dead weight issue. We've all either seen what we have seen on the news or in person so why don't we just discuss the actual point? I lived at the beach for many years, and the same crowds of men looking for trouble have made it a point to come to the beach every Sunday & holiday to make their presence well known. First street should be re-named Car Street, due to the fact that every Sunday pedestrians/bike riders get to watch the car parade, dazzled with chrome rims and low-pro tires. These men that only show up in crowds on SUNDAYS & HOLIDAYS most definitely have threatening attitudes when they drive past or walk past, and most appalling are their gag-inducing stares and vulgar comments to women, even those walking beside another man. Even though I said earlier that we don't need to mention race, I forgot one important fact: It will be a long time coming before the police do anything significant because too many people will cry RACISM!!!

Im black American and i can stay this is not racism. But when see a video full of black people acting a full what do you expect other races to think.Furthermore, we should not look at it by skin color,but by the area of where then men are from. There are classy black men of darker color on the south side and some parts of the west-side (orange park, argyle) . Dreads, sagging pants, stanky odor, stanky breath, oversize shirts and ashy skin is a clear indication that they are from the north side of Jacksonville. The sad thing is no arrest was made. Arrest should been made on the spot. So they will come back because they fill like the police didn't do anything. The Jacksonville beach police department look like a bunch of scary pussies. They need to do a better job of preserving our beautiful beaches were families come to relax in the summer sun and breeze. If the Jacksonville Beach police department was to kill one of those useless no lifes then they would keep that crap on the northside.

Jax beach needs to enforce a dress code of no sagging pants !!! That would help some . And kinda hard not to be racist when it was all black people 30 plus black people !!!looks like the northside invaded jax beach to me, and they wonder why people are racist but when a fight brakes out they will be the first to target a white person. Its the truth people can't handle it then u shouldn't be on the earth.

Can you guys on here be anymore racism? Some of the comments are uncalled for and you should be ashamed about what you say about other races...
