Shocking video shows 2 men brawling in road as Uber tries to get past

Two men were filmed brawling in the road as an Uber tried to get past in West London last night (November 20).

Footage posted online shows four men grappling in the middle of Botwell Lane, Hayes Town, at around 11pm, with one bald-headed man pushing another away saying “you f**k off, you”.

The remaining men continue fighting, with one launching the other at an Uber trying to get past, while more onlookers stare from across the car in the video posted online by the @UB1UB2 Twitter page.

The two men swing wildly but neither land a punch, instead smashing into the cab again before one gets the upper hand and flings his opponent to the floor.

The dramatic scene sees the man swung like rag doll by his jumper collar, with his legs flying out to the side.

This shocking moment leads to jeers of “ooh” from the cameraman as the two men begin to wrestle while the waiting traffic tries to get past.

Despite the larger man laying on top of his attacker, the smaller man in jeans appears to get his opponent in a chokehold before bystanders come in to separate the brawlers.

Later that night a video of the same street reportedly shows a foot chase between a police officer and a man, though the Met have not confirmed if the incidents are related.

It shows a man being chased down the road, before he crosses and comes back the same way, much to the amusement of one witness.

Twitter users left comments about the fight, with one user saying: “Too many guys in sweatsuits in one place and this is bound to happen.”
