An Orlando Police helicopter recently captured infrared footage of what authorities are calling a "fight club," in a Winn-Dixie grocery store parking lot. 

The video shows a pair of young men punching and grappling with each other as onlookers watch. According to WESH, when units arrived on the scene, the suspects scattered and one man actually tried to bury himself in the nearby woods. All suspects were captured, but ultimately only two were arrested, a 21-year-old and an 18-year-old. Both men are facing charges of public fighting and resisting arrest. 

The incident occurred at the Winn-Dixie grocery store at Bridgewater Marketplace, located at 13200 East Colonial Drive.
