Roadside fight in South East Austin caught on camera
A confrontation between two male drivers began around 12:30 p.m. on Monday near I35 and Slaughter Ln.
Twitter user @NoelDeric did not see what started the altercation but began recording when he saw a man with a baseball bat approaching another vehicle.
As one man with a baseball bat approached a dark colored pickup-truck the truck's driver can be seen abruptly exiting his vehicle. After exiting, the driver realizes that he forgot to put the truck in park and he quickly re-entered the truck to put his vehicle in park.
After putting the truck in park the driver re-confronts the man with the bat and the two exchange words. The driver of the truck reaches into the back of the truck and takes out what appears to be a type of long wooden pole.
What follows is a fight between the two men wielding their weapons.
According to Twitter user @NoelDeric both men got back into their vehicles and drove away after the confrontation and no police arrived on the scene.
Austin Police say that they received a call around 12:30 p.m. near the scene where the altercation occurred. A report was made and police are investigating.
According to @NoelDeric neither of the men were seriously injured.
