FRESNO, Calif. (CIRCA via KMPH) — On Thursday, Circa affiliate KMPH received cellphone video of an interaction between three people and a group of Army soldiers. The video shows the end of an altercation witness Brian Humphries recorded.
"I went there to kind of keep the peace and make sure the civilians didn't do anything dumb, and they did," Humphries said.
Before Humphries pulled out his phone to record, he said he was waiting on a food order at an In-N-Out Burger.
"(I was) looking through the windows and saw the people walk out and obviously saw the military."
Humphries says there were at least a couple dozen military soldiers near a charter bus when he saw a group approach them. He said he's still getting a grip on what happened next.
"They spit in one of the military guy's face, threw a soda on him and called him a bunch of obscenities, and (were) just completely disrespectful."
The video doesn't show that or what led up to the yelling. Humphries can be heard apologizing. He said he shot the video to help aid Fresno police, which showed up later.
"I gave (the police) license plate numbers off the video. Hopefully, they can be tracked down. If not, they're on the news now," Humphries said. "If you know them, shame them. If this is your brother, sister or child, this is disrespectful."
