BATON ROUGE- Police opened an investigation into a street brawl that was caught on video and posted on the Internet this week.

"A lot of people got sprayed with mace," said one woman. "They had kids everywhere. It was big."

The fight happened Wednesday on E. Brookstown and Hendricks, near BREC's Howell Park. In the video, there are people looking on, watching the fight and taking pictures. Some of them even encourage people to fight. It was posted to RedStickNow's Facebook page Wednesday afternoon. Since, it's been shared hundreds of times and has hundreds of comments from viewers.

Depending on what detectives find from the video, people could face charges.
