Multiple people were arrested in Montgomery Saturday after a massive brawl broke out on the waterfront along the Alabama River.

Videos of the incident circled social media, showing multiple men and women engaged in the brawl.

CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Massive Riverfront Park brawl in Montgomery leads to multiple arrests.

One video showed a security guard becoming enveloped in the massive crowd. Montgomery Police have not announced how many people were arrested for the incident.

Montgomery Mayor Steven Reed released a statement following the brawl, saying "warrants are being signed."

"Last night, the Montgomery Police Department acted swiftly to detain several reckless individuals for attacking a man who was doing his job," Reed said in a statement. "Warrants are being signed, and justice will be served. This was an unfortunate incident which never should have occurred. As our police department investigates these intolerable actions, we should not become desensitized to violence of any kind in our community. Those who choose violent actions will be held accountable by our criminal justice system."

Barrett Gilbreath, Reed's opponent in the upcoming mayoral race, also released a statement. Gilbreath has been critical of the current administration's handling of crime in the city, drawing the ire of Reed's supporters.

"The violent acts at the Riverfront over the weekend were terrible, and our community should not continue to tolerate this behavior," Gilbreath said. "Our Riverfront, as well as all city public places, should be free from these outbreaks. I commend our first responders for their handling of the situation, but I believe we can put an end to these instances proactively rather than reactively."

"Our family continues to pray for unity in our city, and I am dedicated to bringing all of Montgomery together," he added. "The lack of respect for one another and those in positions of authority must not continue. Montgomery deserves better."
