Cameraman Brandon Howe said he was working on a project when the fight suddenly broke out in front of the TCL Chinese Theatre.

As tourists looked on in shock, Howe said it got more violent when the costumed Mr. Incredible caught and grabbed the woman dressed as Catwoman. That's when the man dressed as Chewbacca intervened.

"My animal brain kicked in. I had to protect the girl, so I just went in and did what I had to do," he said.

Along with the man dressed as Chewbacca, a man in a Waldo costume also said he helped break it up. He said the fight might have started because they all compete for tips from tourists on Hollywood Boulevard.

Police said no criminal report was filed and no one has been arrested. Officers are reviewing the video to determine a course of action.
