Authorities and witnesses said about 1,500 people were at the DMV music awards ceremony at the Crystal City [Arlington County, Virginia] Hyatt hotel when several fights erupted. Five people were treated at the scene and one was taken to a hospital, witnesses said.

The annual awards ceremony honors local performers in rap, hip-hop, go-go and R&B categories. More than 40 awards were to be presented, and the ceremony was about halfway through when the fighting started about 9:45 p.m., according to witnesses.

One witness reported seeing as many as half a dozen fights.
