"Two vehicles stopped and both men got out of their vehicles, started fighting as a result of some sort of altercation," OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said in the video.

Schmidt said they were unable to locate the two cars as they had both fled the scene by the time police arrived, though an officer spoke to one of the alleged fighters in an attempt to figure out what, exactly, had happened.

“This is something that should never be happening,” Schmidt added. “I don’t know what it was that precipitated that led to this kind of escalation, you know, people may have a short fuse but this can turn violent, it could turn deadly, you don’t know what’s going to happen. It’s really not worth it."

Schmidt concluded by asking those who recorded the incident to show it to police.
