Earlier this week, we posted a video of a woman getting kicked in the face (repeatedly) by another woman in a Scottsdale parking garage during one of the more-brutal chick fights we've seen.

Turns out, two of the female brawlers -- and six other men -- were arrested in the melee, according to the Scottsdale Police Department.

See video of the brawl below.

According to Scottsdale police, the brawl went down early Sunday morning in the parking garage at the Galleria.

Seven suspects -- Brenda Nunez, John Galaviz Jr., Johnny Frias Jr.,
Javier Navarro, Isaias Escobar, Heriberto Miranda Jr., and Michael
Gutierrez-Melgoza -- were arrested at the time of the incident.

The eighth suspect, Annette Torrez, 23, left the parking lot after police busted up the brawl. She was arrested last night at a friend's house in Laveen.

Torrez, it appears, is the woman in the video seen repeatedly kicking another woman in the face. She was booked on one count each of aggravated assault and resisting arrest. There was also an unrelated warrant for her arrest when she was taken into custody.

The other suspects were charged with various other crimes -- mostly disorderly conduct. However, Miranda, who's seen getting zapped by a police Taser in the video, was hit with more serious charges, including aggravated assault and hindering prosecution.

Without further ado, below is the video of the Scottsdale chick brawl that led to eight arrests. Enjoy.
