Campus police arrived on the scene within seconds of receiving a report of the altercation and handled the situation quickly and according to established college procedures, the statement says.

"The safety and security of our college’s students, faculty, staff and visitors are of our utmost concern," STLCC says.

The accompanying video was shot by a bystander who posted it on YouTube. The video service removed the video a short time later, saying it violated its terms of service. The video is posted here and the volume has been reduced substantially because it includes profanity.

Campus police have yet to file an incident report of the fight.

That's Meramec? I remember when Meramec was considered the safe and respectable community college to attend. No wonder they built a community college in Wildwood.

hopefully she will. No fight is worth putting a baby down to go duke it out with another! Hope that baby wasn't traumatized either, her cries are heard in the background. But more than likely this is not the first nor will be the last for baby to see mommy getting in fights with others. sad!
