Five Arizona correctional officers are out of a job after video surfaced on them in a street fight.

Police say the five Pima County officers, along with two other off-duty jail guards, were at a Tucson bar last month when some of the men got into a brawl with other patrons outside.

The video shows the men repeatedly punching a man in the head.

During the investigation police learned that four people were attacked, including a teenager.

Five of the officers are charged with aggravated assault; two others are charged with hindering prosecution for allegedly trying to cover up the incident.
