A brawl broke out between a group of revellers on Saturday, throwing an annual lakeside party in Florida into chaos, reports said.
The melee, captured at the event dubbed “The Mayhem at Lake George,” unfolded on and around the deck of the DJ parked in the water. According to WESH 2, one person suffered serious head injuries during the fight.
Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood told the news outlet: “People are just there to have fun, but like anything else, when you have a large number of people like this and you’re involved in alcohol, you do have some incidents. .”
Video footage of the brawl provided by the sheriff’s office showed multiple men rushing towards it, attacking and punching everyone in the water.
One attendee can be seen pushing another attendee away from the DJ booth.
The sheriff’s office told USA TODAY that five people were arrested during the party, including three for rowing under the influence of alcohol and two for disorderly conduct.
Nearly 40 boating summonses were also issued, the report said.
