Barnstable Police Chief Matthew Sonnabend told WBZ's Tim Dunn following the fight that he did not want to see public access to the pond be cut off for those not involved in the brawl.

"We were able to disperse the group— there's been a few videos that have come to our attention through social media sites that we are looking at to try and identify people involved. It seems to be a trend these days where people post things on social media, and other people want to copy what they're doing," Sonnabend said.

Officials did not disclose what other measures are being taken related to the incident.
