OCEAN CITY, Md. (WJZ) — Recent violence in Ocean City, Maryland, is raising concerns from local officials as the tourism season in the beach community begins.

A cellphone video taken Tuesday night captured a fight on the boardwalk.

The video appears to show a large group of people on the boardwalk when a brawl breaks out. One person appears to get hit and falls motionless to the ground.

The crowd moves around before what appears to be another fight.

This comes just days after police put out two pictures of suspects following a stabbing Sunday night on the boardwalk between 6th and 7th streets.


Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan released the following statement:

“We are equally horrified by the actions displayed on social media video depicting violence and unruly crowds. This behavior has no place in Ocean City, and violence like this will not be tolerated. The town and OCPD are working immediately on addressing this disturbing behavior.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 410-723-6604 or email crimetips@oceancitymd.gov.

    That’s not a black mod….no..your eyes are deceiving you, it’s just a group of misguided youth, that’s all nothing to see here white people. Now make sure you defund the cops because that is the answer to all the racial problems. Truthfully I am surprised it got the attention it did, maybe now people will start to understand what’s really going on.

    espn and cnn and msnbc and most media are detroying our country by promoting division…

    The backlash is coming & it will be fierce. If blacks think it’s open season on white people, they’ll find out that this will be the path to ruin.

      Jennifer – while this violence is terrible and can not be condoned, this is just a small set of knuckleheads and not representative of the larger collective. And as to your thinly veiled threat, after slavery, Rosewood, Tulsa and everyday racism and police brutality there is nothing that can be done that hasnt already been done to black people. In fact, once could call this crows finally coming home to roost – violence begets more violence which is indeed a terrifying thought

        A quote for you- “When black people riot, cities burn. When white people riot, continents burn.” Be careful what you wish for, you may get it…

    Is there any information on that young man’s condition?

    1. Janae says:

      What you just witnessed is a murder taking place. That young man died from this assault.

    diversity doesn’t work. white people, arm yourselves. knives, guns, 2x4s in the car. crack some skulls.

  6. Doctor Strangelove says:

    Was this racial violence?

    1. Shakdi Dagalimal says:

      This is just one of hundreds according to FBI crime stats. The media usually covers it up, I guess it slipped their BLM censors.

    Черножопое дерьмо.

  8. Jaxson says:

    Black on white violence is rampant in this country. The media tries its best to ignore it. Very surprised WJZ showed the video.

  9. Jack OBrien says:

    Did you see that white guy white those poor poc with his face, right in their fists. Geez, I hope he didn’t give those future dr.’s and scientists the covid.

  10. LytchZam says:

    And officials are worried about “tourist season.”

  11. Stuart says:

    WOW! 20 against one. What a fair fight.

    I love how WJZ calls it a “Boardwalk Fight”… I’m sure if the races were reversed, the headline would have been ” Unarmed Black Teen Assaulted By White Teens” . it should say ” Unarmed Black Teens Assault White Teens On Boardwalk”…..since they love to throw out “unarmed”…. We see how unarmed means not dangerous……

  13. That was NOT A Fight…. That was a pack of demons that need to be put down

    Time for somebody to start working on the final solution to America’s kneegar problem.
