ENGLISHTOWN — A day at the track turned viral for a couple who caused trouble in the stands at Raceway Park.

Video, seen tens of thousands of times, shows the couple getting into fights and even attacking a security guard.

The pair were not arrested.

A man and woman were kicking, tripping and grabbing at people in the area of Turn 2, witnesses told the Facebook news group Jersey Coast Emergency News. (WARNING: Language is not safe for work).

As racers went by on the nearby track, the couple got into several fights with fellow fans. Security eventually removed them from the stands.

Old Bridge police Capt. Joe Mandola told New Jersey 101.5 that officers responded after they were notified of the assault. An officer spoke with the woman and the security staffer, who did not want to pursue simple assault charges against the female, Mandola said.

The woman left the track without any further incident, Mandola said.

Raceway Park on Tuesday afternoon did not respond to New Jersey 101.5's request for more information.

These are the best hiking spots in New Jersey

A trip to New Jersey doesn't have to be all about the beach. Our state has some incredible trails, waterfalls, and lakes to enjoy.

From the Pine Barrens to the Appalachian Trail to the hidden gems of New Jersey, you have plenty of options for a great hike. Hiking is such a great way to spend time outdoors and enjoy nature, plus it's a great workout.

Before you go out on the trails and explore some of our listeners' suggestions, I have some tips on hiking etiquette from the American Hiking Society.

If you are going downhill and run into an uphill hiker, step to the side and give the uphill hiker space. A hiker going uphill has the right of way unless they stop to catch their breath.

Always stay on the trail, you may see side paths, unless they are marked as an official trail, steer clear of them. By going off-trail you may cause damage to the ecosystems around the trail, the plants, and wildlife that live there.

You also do not want to disturb the wildlife you encounter, just keep your distance from the wildlife and continue hiking.

Bicyclists should yield to hikers and horses. Hikers should also yield to horses, but I’m not sure how many horses you will encounter on the trails in New Jersey.
If you are thinking of bringing your dog on your hike, they should be leashed, and make sure to clean up all pet waste.

Lastly, be mindful of the weather, if the trail is too muddy, it's probably best to save your hike for another day.
