NI STAFF, NI Editors

A fight on College Hill last weekend led to the damage of a car scheduled to be filmed in a movie, according to KWWL News.

Cedar Falls police are investigating the fight, which occurred in front of Sharky’s on College Hill at approximately 2 a.m. on Saturday, September 7.

An eight-second video of the altercation was posted on Facebook by the owner of the vehicle, Haki Al-Yassiri. According to Al-Yassiri’s post, he walked out of the bar to discover the dent and used Snapchat to obtain video of the fight from a fellow bargoer. The video shows one man slamming another into the side of a car, leading several others to join the fight before the video ends.

According to Al-Yassiri, the Ford Mustang received a dent on the driver side quarter panel. In an interview with KWWL on September 10, Al-Yassiri was especially frustrated because the Mustang was due to be filmed in a few scenes for a movie later in the week.

Cedar Falls Police Chief Jeff Olson said that everyone had left the scene by the time police arrived. He said the police are reviewing the Facebook video as well as footage from the city’s new high-definition College Street security cameras. No arrests have been made at this time.

In his interview with KWWL, Al-Yassiri addressed the perpetrators.

“Just know that your actions have consequences; they have collateral. You’re not just affecting the personal you’re in the confrontation with; you’re affecting everyone else around you in some way or another,” he said.
