A fight outside of Tigerland Saturday night involved at least 50 people and left several injured, according to Baton Rouge Police Department.

BRPD spokesperson Cpl. L’Jean McKneely said he could not confirm if University students were involved or how many people were arrested at this time.

McKneely also said he could not comment on the motivation for the brawl.

A picture circulating social media shows one man with a severely bloodied face lying on the ground, with messages like "Tigerland crazy, man."
