Video: Vancouver parking fight gets wild and angry

A wild parking fight video at a Vancouver mall was posted on YouTube Sunday and is now under police investigation.

The four-minute, thirty-second video was taken in what appears to be a crowded parking lot at the First Avenue Marketplace, the southwestern corner of Renfrew and 1st Avenue.

According to the notes in the video posted by Youtube user Kazumaco, the conflict began when a man driving a small black Honda Fit entered a parking spot while a black Honda Odyssey was preparing to get back at him.

The video begins with an older man who was driving the Odyssey on top of the other man, who was younger, on his Honda Fit. Both are struggling, with the older man at the top and appearing to hit some blows on the other's head, but it looks more like an angry wrestling matchup. After a minute, a woman opens the door of Fit's passenger and the driver gets out.

"He was just saving the place, that's all necessary," a viewer can be heard saying in Cantonese. Others can be heard speaking Cantonese and Mandarin, asking each party to stop fighting and leave.

The older man then takes off his white jacket and is preparing to fight again against the other man, who appears at this point to incite him.

Two women, including one who appears to be the wife of the older man, then get involved and the wife ends up in a verbal fight with Fit's driver.

"Stop fighting", the woman can be heard repeatedly in Cantonese.

"Occupying the place, you are," says the older man in Cantonese, while the younger man threatens to call the police.

"He attacked me first. He attacked me first, did you see that? "The younger man can be heard asking in English until the end of the video, when a woman tries to get between the two men.

"Get out of the way," the older man says to the woman, who replies, "There is no fight."

During the filming of the video, the cameraman goes on to say that the police are coming.

Sgt. Jason Robillard, of the Vancouver Police Department, confirmed to the press that the police had been called and showed up at the scene. No arrests have been made, but the case is under investigation.
