HOUSTON --Multiple women were involved in a classic showdown near the Houston Zoo over a parking spot and it was all caught on camera.
According to an #abc13eyewitness viewer, she and her husband were waiting to get into the zoo and dozens of vehicles were circling the parking lot looking for a spot. Our viewer claims a woman jumped out a vehicle and ran over to an empty spot and tried to hold it, although several cars were in front of the woman's vehicle.
The viewer says that's when another woman got out of her car and the fists started to fly. The video shows multiple women fighting and pulling each others' hair. In the middle of the brawl, another women tries to put a stroller in the empty parking spot.
Several children witnessed the fight and officers were called to the scene.
The Houston Police Department told Eyewitness News that when officers arrived, the complainant was gone.
The Houston Zoo released this statement in response to the video:
"While the parking lot outside the Houston Zoo front entrance is not owned or managed by the zoo, we were disappointed to see the behavior displayed by the adults in the video. The safety and security of our guests is our priority and we work diligently with our staff and HPD to ensure visitors to the Houston Zoo are safe."
