GAINSVILLE, Florida -- A surveillance video police tried to keep under wraps has found its way into the hands of 10 News Investigators reporter Mike Deeson. It shows what some are calling a melee between University of Florida and Florida State University fans in the west side sixth floor luxury sky box hallway of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

The rivalry between the two schools on the football field is legendary and now, thanks to surveillance video, so is the fight inside the stadium. The video shows a fan getting off an elevator and confronting another fan. The first fan pushes the second and then it's every person for him or herself.

This wasn't a fight in the cheap seats, either. This was in the skybox suites where, according to the Gator Booster's office, a 30-ticket suite goes for $87,000 and a 20-seat suite goes for $58,000 per season. While drinking is not allowed in the stadium, drinking is allowed in the skybox suites.

Two people were detained by police and one was arrested. One person was taken to the hospital.
