The subway trains of NYC can be some of the wildest places in the world at times, and a video posted to Youtube last week gave a glimpse of that with a very unpredictable ending to the dispute.
In the video a woman is seen bashing a man she claims is following her.
After the verbal and physical assault gets into full swing, a man seen eating chips just walks between the two without saying a word.
The woman continues shouting at her victim, but the violence comes to an end.
NYU Local caught up with the good samaritan to get his take on the happenings of that night.
What were you going on the 6 train that day?
It was a Thursday night about 9:30pm; my friend Dan Csank and I were heading uptown to grab some drinks with a couple of girls after leaving our favorite bar, Home Sweet Home.
What were you eating?
A stack of Cheddar Pringles that my friend had shared with me. The bag in my hand was Gummi Bears.
Why did you feel the need to break up that fight?
I felt the need to stop the fight as soon as I could. It seemed that the girl was the first one to make physical contact, but that’s no excuse for any man to kick any female. I had to do something. Everyone else was just sitting there watching.
Do you mind your own business on the train? Was this incident out of character for you?
Typically I mind my own business on the train. In this case, I thought someone may have needed help. I would consider myself a helpful person as well as a bit of a “snacker.”
Are New Yorkers rude if they don’t break up a fight?
I don’t think it means that you are rude if you don’t break up a fight. I wouldn’t expect a little old lady to get in the middle of a scuffle. But I wasn’t afraid of these two combatants.
What’s your favorite all time snack?
I would say those Cheddar Pringles hit the spot that night on that train. It depends on the mood I’m in.
