16 Arrested in California Beach Brawl

A huge brawl broke out on Labour Day at a San Diego beach. Police had to use tear gas to break up the fight. It's estimated that over 500 people were involved in the fight, but only six or seven people responsible for starting it. City councilman Kevin Faulconer said alcohol did play a part in the fight.

The crowd was estimated about 500 people, authorities said. A police helicopter hovered over the beach while officers on the ground formed a skirmish line along the boardwalk.
