And you think you had a bad commute. A dozen people were treated this morning after pepper spray was released on a crowded subway car following an argument between two passengers. 

The incident happened on the A train at the Howard Beach station in Queens, reports NBC New York. Apparently the argument escalated until one passenger sprayed the other in the face with the substance. “Any time there is Mace or pepper spray in an enclosed area like that, you have to remove people from the immediate location,” a source told The Post

Both people involved in the fight were taken to Jamaica Hospital, but it's not clear if any arrests were made. .
