The costumed performers who frequent Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles might face tighter rules after video of a fight between two of them surfaced online, KTLA-TV reported.
The footage, originally posted on the pop culture site FilmOn.com, shows a man dressed as the Disney character Mr. Incredible pushing a woman dressed as Batgirl up against a wall. Three other performers quickly try to break up the altercation.
However, the footage also shows the man breaking away from two of the performers and advance toward the woman again. He appears to throw a punch and a kick before slamming her to the ground, at which point a bystander gets between him and the woman and backs him away.
A performer who witnessed the fight told KTLA that the fight started after the man accused “Batgirl” of standing “too close” to him. The costumed characters appear on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and often pose with tourists for tip money.
“The good ones, we’re stationary, we’ll stand against the curb, people come to us,” another performer told FilmOn.com. “But the bad ones they roam up and down, so they cross paths or they target the same people, and then they get into each other.”
No arrests were made in connection to the incident, but according to KTLA, city officials are working on new regulations to cover the performers’ presence.

Trump tells Fox News the ‘Black Lives Matter’ sign on Fifth Avenue is like he’s being ‘prosecuted’
President Donald Trump appeared to reveal another quid pro quo during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell pointed it out during an interview with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).
"I was very nice to Mayor de Blasio. I got him ventilators when he needed them... I got him the gowns. I got him the masks. I got him everything. Then he throws a big Black Lives Matter sign right down in the middle of Fifth Avenue. I was so good to him and to Gov. Cuomo, like nobody's ever been good. And then all you end up doing out of that place is getting prosecuted."
