Major fight on Washington St.

“Just saw a major fight on Washington Street between 3rd and 4th. I heard a lot of yelling and swearing and looked out the window to see one guy laid out unconcious and another guy with a torn shirt running in the street being chased by a group.
Torn shirt guy was pretty big and pushing people around pretty well, and had to be taken down by 3 of Hoboken’s finest. At least 3 arrests and the Paramedics were called for the injured party (in addition to the usual ambulance).
A few other people came very close to being arrested for hysterically getting in PD’s faces and not obeying directions.
PD recovered a police “asp” (basically a type of extendable baton) that the unconcious guy got hit in the head with.
This was definitely a bar crowd fight and not from the projects.
