Fourth Of July Melee Leaves Cincinnati Man Bloodied, Unconscious


The man beaten unconscious this weekend following a July 4th concert in Cincinnati originally fought with one opponent, but then was pummeled by others, according to video shot by an onlooker.

As seen above, the victim was left bloodied during a melee late Saturday at Fountain Square in downtown Cincinnati. The unidentified man (pictured below) was later transported to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he was treated and released the following day.

Police are investigating the incident, which was one of a series of disturbances that occurred as the concert and a Cincinnati Reds game were concluding.

The video was shot from inside a city bus by a passenger who believes the confrontation began after the victim “was trying to get on the bus and bumped into the black dude.”
