Santa Con took place in NYC on Saturday, and after fear of being shut down by the NYPD for drunken recklessness in previous years, the boozed out Saint Nick’s were still able to hit the streets of NYC.

A group of men wearing Santa suits got into a brawl near Union Square that was caught on video Saturday night, cops said.

It is believed those involved in the fight were participating in the SantaCon event that took place Saturday.

“We’re looking into it,” said NYPD spokesman Sgt. Lee Jones said after the Daily News notified cops of the video that was posted on YouTube. “We don’t have any reported assaults right now. We know about it.”

The gathering has been controversial as some residents have complained about drunken Santas vomiting and fighting. The YouTube video was posted under the heading “Santapocolypse NYC 2013.”
It is unknown what caused the Santas to scuffle near Union Square.
