Norwalk police arrested two people following a brawl in a parking lot early Saturday morning.
Viewer video captured the melee that began in La Torche Night Club and escalated in the South Norwalk lot.
Police say there were more than 600 people in the lot at around 2 a.m., and that they had to call reinforcements from Stamford, Darien, Westport, New Canaan, Wilton and state police.
Police say patrons at the club complained that bouncers sprayed them with pepper spray.
Authorities arrested Christopher Bautista, of Stamford, and Stanley Bruno, of Danbury.
