Searching for something else on YouTube this morning, we came across this video of a pretty well-attended brawl outside MLK High School on Lexington. One girl's getting her head stomped, people are thrown over cars and punched, groups of three or four swing at solitary victims.

The video seems to hint that the "bangout," as the video calls it, happened last week, but we can't find a concrete date. The Fourth District wasn't immediately familiar with the incident and suggested we search police reports to find more specifics. They also didn't seem too interested that video of the fight was on YouTube. Know anything? Send along the info.

The original YouTube video has been deleted by the person who uploaded it. Clips from the brawl can be seen in this Fox 8 video.
