Houma, La. - A fight involving police officers on a Houma parade route has the officers under an internal investigation.

Video posted on YouTube shows how the scuffle during the Aphrodite parade unfolded. As officers led away one person in handcuffs for reasons unknown, it appears someone threw something at the arresting officer. The fight erupts after the officer confronts one man. Other officers subdue the man quickly.

The man involved in the fight with officers has been identified as Adrian Frye. Houma Police Chief Todd Duplantis says Frye has been booked with battery on a police officer and resistance by violence.
