Investigators released surveillance video on Monday from the Crossroads Pizza & Wings Bar on Mt. Evans Boulevard in Pine Junction.

It shows a fight between three men, one of whom was holding his 4-year-old daughter.

WARNING: Surveillance video below shows a violent bar fight and a small child nearly getting hurt.

The brawl actually happened on Jan. 25 at around 10 p.m. Investigators say it took some time to release the video because they were sorting out what happened.

The man holding the child was identified as 39-year-old Richard Brown who is seen approaching a man. Shortly thereafter, another man punches Brown.

Other men got involved, and after several moments the child is taken out Brown’s arms and Brown is then knocked unconscious.

The child was not hurt, but Brown faces a child abuse charge.

One man, 31-year-old Joel Wilson, was arrested on a first-degree assault charge.

  1. My God what a bunch of cowards! Ganging up on the man with a child in his arms; sucker punched to begin with and then teamed up on him. Real impressive – NOT. Idiots
