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.

The two biggest attacks on Mike Bloomberg came from the women at the debate
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg had a target painted on his for the Democratic Debate in Las Vegas Wednesday, and all of the Democrats came out swinging.
After an attack by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) explained that there's a billionaire in the race who degrades women by calling them "fat broads and horse-faced lesbians," and it wasn't Donald Trump.
"I'm talking about Mayor Bloomberg," she said. "Democrats are not going to win if we have a nominee who has a history of hiding his tax returns, of harassing women. And of supporting racist policies like redlining and stop and frisk. Look, I'll support whoever the Democratic nominee is, but understand this, Democrats take a huge risk if we just substitute one arrogant billionaire for another."
‘Barr is a toady’: Jeffrey Toobin says talk of attorney general resigning is ‘just a big show’
CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin says he doesn't believe Attorney General William Barr when he claims he considered resigning from the Trump administration.
Sources close to Barr told ABC News that the attorney general had contemplated quitting because President Donald Trump's tweets make it difficult for him to do his job.
"Barr is a toady," Toobin explained during an appearance on CNN. "Barr is doing what he's told. He had this one statement, 'Oh, whoa is me, it's hard for me to do my job when the president tweets.'"
