CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WWAY) — Carolina Beach Police are investigating a fight between as many as 60 people that sent four men to the hospital, one with severe head trauma.

According to a witness whose identity we have chosen to withhold due to her age two separate groups of people had had been out on the Royal Winner Princess II Party Cruise.

When they returned to shore her group was trying to decide on rides home when her 32-year-old cousin got in a verbal altercation with a member of the other group, which she believed to be from Clinton, NC.

“The dude started rambling on about something and pushed my cousin, and then after that it was like chaos,” said a teenage witness to the fight. “People surrounded him, and from what I could see they were beating him up pretty bad, but my father came in and yanked someone off of him and beat him to the ground. Then this random dude came out of nowhere and tried to hit my dad so my first reaction was to try and run and stop the conflict between my dad and this random dude. This man came between me and my dad and threw a swing at me and it hurt.”

During the altercation our witness says her cousin tried to use a shovel to protect himself but was repeatedly hit in the head with bricks from a nearby building. The man suffered severe head trauma and is currently in the intensive care unit at the New Hanover Regional Medical Center.

At this time Carolina Beach Police say that there is an ongoing investigation into the incident; however, no warrants have been issued and no arrests have been made.

This is in response to the mother, Marie Balloon who left a comment. How can you even open your mouth to comment about a situation that YOU weren’t apart of? Maybe YOU (mother) should have been there instead of the ADULT THUGS (at least 7 or 8)YOU left your daughter and friends with. You are truly going by hear say accounts. Your child and the other girls that were accompanied by the ADULT THUGS YOU left them in charge with, did become aggressive and attempted to board a party bus that they didnt belong on. They didn’t come on a… Read more »

Wow to be a witness you sure didn’t see anything. The wilmington people were standing in front of the clinton bus figuring out what child would ride with who. As a matter of fact there was 5 women in that party. The man with the shovel picked up the shovel after being shoved and hit by 3 different men. The car that blocked the van was a cop car thats how the police kept them from leaving. As a teenager if you saw your father getting hit with bricks wouldn’t you try to stop it? The shovel came from the… Read more »

That was just another Saturday night party for the brawlers from Clinton. They don’t think it’s a party unless someone starts a fight. That’s what they do for entertainment. Hitting a woman or child doesn’t bother them either, everyone is game.
