Fight Follow-up

Joining us..

It can be a dangerous mix - alcohol - heat and tempers.

Over the weekend, a disturbing video of a fight near the msu campus surfaced on twitter.

Starkville police make an arrest late this afternoon in the case..

They say more are expected as the investigation continues.

But, some people are questioning whether the department has enough staff to handle the crowds coming in for large events.

Our cash matlock joins us live from starkville with more on the community's reaction..

Joey, right behind me is the scene of saturday night's melee.

We have decided not to show you that video.

I spoke with several members of the starkville community and students at msu..

Some say the city needs more officers on duty, others seem to think of this as an isolated incident.

Jeff artiguez is a deacon at st.

Joseph's catholic church in starkville... the scene of the now viral fight video.

Artiguez says he learned of the fight early monday morning, he actually watched the video for the first time during our interview.

"i guess sad and frustrated that something like that would happen."

The church is located in the middle of the cotton district, but artiguez says this is the first time anything like this has happened on the church property...but church leaders aren't very concerned.

"probably more so of an isolated incident.

I think the starkville police department is already doing all that they can, but they just might need to be more visible."

Backing up that statement, starkville mayor lynn spruill says the video is simply a sign of the times.

"i have told others, this bad behavior has been going on for decades, for hundreds of years, we just now have cell phones that we can record it."

Going forward, some students are concerned about safety when having a night out.

"i think there should be a little more security out there, especially for game days, because like i said, they're intoxicated, and you never know what's going to happen."

The city is already planning for future big events like bulldog bash.

"we've got all hands on deck from the starkville police department as well as the university.

The campus police are going to help us.

I'm sure that the sheriff's department and anyone else that we feel we need will be available."

On the whole, spruill says residents of starkville should feel safe.

"i want us to react responsibly and not over- react anytime that we get those kinds of viral videos.

I think the knee-jerk reaction is never the right one.

It is a considered and contemplated response from our police department whom i trust thoroughly as to how they are going to handle that, and i fully anticipate that they will be ready for any of the event that we have coming."

Sources close to wcbi tell us that a lead instigator behind the fight has been identified and is a student at mississippi state... police are discussing
