The NYPD is investigating a video of a dad who allegedly took his daughter to a fight in Williamsburg, and then ended up punching various teenage girls himself.
Cops say that the pre-planned fight happened at about 12:30 p.m. at Havemeyer Street and Division Avenue in Williamsburg last Thursday. One of the girls in the video, 16-year-old Alexandra Pineiro, told ABC that she and her friends were approached by another 14-year-old girl, who she had previously fought, and her father.
She claims the father encouraged the girls to fight, and then joined in himself. You can see what happened in the cell phone video below.

Alexandra had cuts, scrapes, and bruises all over her body as a result of the fight. "Her father was trying to break it up in the beginning, and then he started hitting me, started choking me, pulling my hair, pushing me over the fence, I guess trying to let her win," Alexandra told ABC, "and then my friends jumped in to defend me, and he started swinging at everyone else."
The NYPD says the as-yet-unidentified suspect is now wanted for felony assault. Cops describe him as over 6 feet tall, and weighing nearly 300 pounds.
