Ferris wheel operator beaten in wild Florida carnival fight video

A Ferris wheel operator at a South Florida carnival attacked a black mother before he was pummeled by a crowd of onlookers, video shows.

The wild, caught-on-camera brawl occurred at the Opa-locka Hialeah Flea Market on Saturday night, news station WPLG reported.

Footage posted to Twitter showed the woman scolding the carnival employee as she exits the ride — and the argument quickly taking a violent turn.

In the clip, the man puts his hands on the woman and pushes her.

The two start hitting each other, prompting other carnival-goers to jump over the ride’s gates to defend the woman, video shows.

Police responded and later interviewed the woman, WPLG reported.

Detectives said they believe there’s enough “probable cause” to arrest the ride operator.
