(Scroll down for video) People were happy to see that a man was punished for spitting on passersby from a balcony, according to police in Louisiana.

The New Orleans Police Department said that they had to keep an angry crowd away from the victim because they wanted to get revenge against him for spitting at them.

The incident unfolded on Friday, at around 11:00 p.m., on the 700 block of Bourbon Street.

The victim, who was not identified, was standing on the balcony of a bar, and was spitting on passersby below on the street.

At some point, as the victim leaned over the balcony to spit on yet another passerby, he fell to the ground and suffered serious head injuries.

As the victim was being loaded into an ambulance, a large crowd tried to get to him as they were angry for being spat at.

Police managed to keep the drunk crowd away from the ambulance until it drove away from the scene.

11 police officers helped keep order at the scene using horses to clear a path for the ambulance.
