Well, it was just a matter of time: fights over Black Friday deals caught on camera.

The fist started to fly between a group of women in Cypress over a parking spot. An Eyewitness News viewer, Jared Fontenot told us the altercation happened around 1:00am on Friday at the Houston Premium Outlet. Fontenot said it took him about 55 minutes to find a parking spot and the women started fighting over a sport nearby. He said the fight started with two women and then two other women joined the brawl. Fontenot shot 15 seconds of the fight with his cell phone, but left when it appeared the situation was escalating.

A new video from Columbus, Mississippi shows shoppers in a Walmart fighting over what appears to be a portable DVD player.

Back in 2014, also in a Walmart, customers there fought over a TV on sale.

"People were climbing over each other to get a TV," said one witness. "It was crazy."
