A violent fight that broke out outside a pizza restaurant in Miami Beach Sunday left a suspect covered in blood and hungry for another confrontation.

The owner of the pizza shop said 51-year-old Helge Husby started fighting with an unidentified man in the parking lot at Mega Pizza, located at 9th Street and Collins Avenue.

Customers at the restaurant said Husby was being "erratic and confrontational" on the street and then inside the pizzeria.

A tourist from Chicago witnessed the whole scene.

"If you look at the video, it was a lot of people inside that pizzeria, and that guy was also kind of drugged," he said.

According to an arrest report, Husby headed toward the restaurant after the initial scuffle in the parking lot. He then tried to start a fight with another customer, the report said.

Cell phone footage shows Husby falling backwards into the shop, then being dragged out onto the road. The store manager and staff then locked the door of the restaurant.

Husby grew erratic, the arrest report said, and began banging his head and hands on the door of the eatery. He then started screaming at customers through the glass.

A group of onlookers swarmed around the restaurant as Husby continued his attempts to barge in. Police officers arrived on scene and took Husby, who is listed as homeless, into custody.

Later, the man from the initial confrontation came forward and told police he was the owner of a black Lamborghini that sustained damages due to the fight.

Blood, a dent, and scratches were discovered on the vehicle, an estimated $1,500 in damages.

Husby was arrested and is facing multiple charges, including disorderly conduct, disorderly intoxication and criminal mischief.
