Video: NYPD-FDNY charity football game turns into brawl


On Monday, the NYPD and FDNY came together for a charity football game.

Unfortunately, things got ugly when tempers boiled over and members of the police and fire departments started throwing some major blows in what ended as a bloody brawl.

How did it all start?

“I think one of the FDNY guys exchanged words with the NYPD player and then from there, I couldn’t see what was happening, I just saw the crowds come around the player,” a freelance photographer told NBC 4 in New York.

“I heard it happening before I saw it happening.”

The NYPD went on to win the game, 29-13

Hey, can’t we all just get along?

After the game was over, the NYPD released a statement saying the bad blood would end on the field.

“Football is a competitive sport, whether it is the NFL Super Bowl or the annual NYPD-FDNY challenge. It is part of the spirit of the sport, but it all ends on the field,” the statement read.
