The annual SantaCon event in NYC got ugly Saturday night. If you don't know, SantaCon is an event which draws thousands of men and women who dress up like Santa and do a pub crawl. It started in Tompkins Square Park in the East Village. It is an annual charity event but lately it's drawn criticism for being one giant drunken party. So much so that the NYPD even sent notices to bars this year asking them to not serve anyone dressed as Santa Claus.

Here's why. This video, not safe for work because of language and violence, show several participants decked out in Santa suits beating each other down in the street. Everyone was gone by the time the cops got there but police are looking into the video.
