Philly police have seen those Center City Sips fight videos too.

A large fight involving at least four (probably intoxicated) dudes broke out last night near the Comcast Center, and several videos are circulating on social media showing the booze-soaked melee. An official with the Philadelphia Police Department said they’d been sent “the same videos everyone else is seeing.” She added that she was unsure whether or not a police report had been filed.

Here’s that from another angle, just in case you want to see more:

Center City Sips, organized by the Center City District, is a weekly event of sorts that takes place all across Center City through the summer. On Wednesdays during happy hour, restaurants and bars offer cheap specials, and the Sips crowd is known to get a little rowdy.

We’ll update this article if police provide additional information.
