Yo, Venice! A fight that involved some 70 people on Venice's boardwalk last night has prompted the LAPD to kick up their presence today, according to the LA Times. Around 8 p.m. a fight erupted on the boardwalk near 17th and Windward Avenue, calming down and then becoming intense again. No one was seriously hurt, no weapons were confiscated and there was only one arrest by 9 p.m. when it was over. As police cleared the beach block by block, another fight broke out when a drum circle was broken up.
