CORPUS CHRISTI - A video showing the beating and stabbing of a man outside a bar was posted on Facebook today. The victim told police he was jumped by at least 8 men outside the business at Weber and Saratoga.
The video supports the claim. A large group is seen punching the guy in the ground as someone who appears to be a bouncer tries to separate the group.
The victim managed to get up, climb into a car and speed off. There's some confusion over whether he got into the passenger side or driver's side of that car.
Police say the victim admitted to stealing a car so he could drive to the hospital. The video shows a different situation. A little red car keeps coming back in an apparent attempt to run over the attackers.
Officers caught up with the victim near Crosstown and Holly. At last report, he's still in critical condition.
KRIS 6 News informed the Corpus Christi Police Department about the video posted online. Most of the people seen in the footage are cussing loudly and appear to be enjoying themselves during the melee.
It is not clear what caused all the trouble.
