NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) – A large fight at a popular North Myrtle Beach hangout led to the arrests of eight people, according to incident reports.

North Myrtle Beach police were called just before 12:45 a.m. Sunday to Sky Bar on Main Street for reports of a large fight involving multiple groups.

According to multiple incident reports, the fight started inside the bar. Officers said security had flagged them down to help break it up.
