Jason Wiggins, of Los Lunas, New Mexico, was arrested on suspicion of battery and other charges after he launched an expletive-laden tirade at employees and then assaulted five different people, according to a Metropolitan Police Department arrest report.
Michael Boyd, who was with Wiggins, was cited for misdemeanor battery, police said.
Speaking in Spanish, taco truck worker Lázaro Alberto Correa alleged: ‘They attacked me and my coworkers.’
In the video, several people can be seen pushing each other just before the mass brawl erupts outside the taco store.
A man in an eye-catching purple shellsuit is involved and is shown throwing multiple punches.
Another man is seen lying on the floor while being hit in the face as the man in the purple shellsuit continues fighting a few feet away.
One person in the video appears to have been wrestled into a headlock beside a vehicle.

At the end of the video, a man can be heard saying: ‘Let’s go.’
The arrest report said that Wiggins is seen shouting at an employee. He then turns to the person filming the incident on her phone and tells her to stop recording, before trying to grab the phone a couple of times.
Wiggins and Boyd can be seen punching somebody in the face numerous times. Wiggins shoves another employee to the ground.
A male described as Wiggins’ son darts over to an employee and ‘hits him in the face multiple times,’ the arrest report said.
Wiggins was also ‘hitting and grappling’ with somebody alongside Boyd, police said in the report.
Wiggins’ son, who was not identified in the report, was also wrestling with somebody.

Another employee later told police Wiggins had shoved a female taco truck worker into a sink, according to the report.
Wiggins was also accused of returning after the scrap with an apparent thermos bottle and hitting one of the employees in the head and neck with it.
Correa said the taco truck staff were fearing for their safety after the fight.
All of the victims’ identities were blacked out of the arrest report.
Wiggins also faces a charge of resisting an officer. Police said that he made his body ‘dead weight’ and dropped to the ground when police tried to take him into custody.
In the post that contains the video on Taqueria Casa del Sabor’s Instagram account, the company spoke out against the people who started the fight and thanked customers for their support. They wrote that they will not move because it is their home.
