The Kelowna RCMP says it is now investigating after several fights were reported during a Steve-O show this past weekend and they're looking for videos of altercation.

Police said they received a complaint regarding an altercation Oct. 28 in the 1300 block of Water Street in downtown Kelowna.

Kelowna resident Meara Davison, who attended the 9 p.m. show at the Kelowna Community Theatre, said she saw multiple fights.

The first incident involved two women who were arguing on the far left side of the theatre before one slapped the other prior to the show, she said. “It just broke out into a full on fight… and people surrounding them were backing up. This one girl like grabbed the other’s hair and was pounding her face.”

A heckler also started a fight with three security guards, she said. “Steve-O actually walked off the stage.”

A video posted to YouTube shows multiple people hitting each other.

"An investigation is underway and police are asking for the public’s assistance. If anyone that attended the performance has photos or video footage of the altercation, please call Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300 and reference the file number 2022-67847," according to police.

According to Tom Wilson, communications manager with the city, any of the patrons involved were escorted out of the show by security.

"The City and the Kelowna Community Theatre are upset by the aggressive behaviour of the audience members, especially at our Community Theatre. We believe this to an isolated incident and is not reflective of our Theatre audiences,” he said, via email.
