Take a look at your First News for Friday, May 10.

David Sal Silva, the father of four young children, died early Wednesday morning after deputies say he fought with them and CHP officers who'd responded to a report of a possibly intoxicated man outside Kern Medical Center.

People who say they witnessed the incident as well as Silva's family members described a scene in which deputies essentially were beating a helpless man to death. They were indignant that cellphone video had been taken away by deputies.

And two people were arrested after a fight in the halls of Rabobank Arena and video of the brawl has gone viral, viewed more than 3,400 times on Youtube. The encounter took place during a "Cinco de Mayo Bomb Concert" promoted by radio station Hot 94.1 on Saturday, May 4.
