Man mistakes warning horn of reversing car as taunt and angrily starts brawl at Ang Mo Kio


A man started a fight after mistaking a warning horn from a reversing car as a taunt on Tuesday. The incident occurred at a carpark in front of Block 715 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 6 around 3.51pm.

According the Chinese daily, a driver was reversing his vehicle and sounded his horn to alert other vehicles behind his car. Unfortunately, one of the drivers behind the car mistook the horn as a taunt and alighted his vehicle to confront the first driver.

It is believed that there were three vehicles between the first driver and the one who took offense at the warning horn.

The altercation quickly grew when both drivers decided to gather their friends and talk it out at the Big Mac Centre at 51 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3, only for talks to devolve into a brawl between both sides.

An eyewitness who works at a nearby dental clinic told the Chinese daily that two men kept exchanging blows and tugging at each other’s clothing as they ran. Friends of the two parties are also believed to have participated in the brawl.
