Four Officers Injured After Fight Breaks Out at Festival in Spain

Four police officers were injured and one person arrested after a fight broke out at a fairground in central Spain early Sunday, August 28, local officials said.

Footage posted to Twitter by user @iisaa_ls shows crowds of people in Alcala de Henares as a loud bang goes off in the background. Other footage posted to social media shows a fire in the area on the same night.

News outlet TeleMadrid reported that altercations from the fairground moved to the town square and surrounding streets and police worked to clear the scene until 8 am Sunday.

A ‘street brawl’ between gangs could have triggered the panic, local outlets said, citing sources from the local council and eyewitnesses. Credit: @iisaa_ls via Storyful
