Police are asking witnesses to come forward and help identify the two people in this YouTube video seen in an apparent road-rage incident. Msnbc.com's Dara Brown reports.
LONDON - Police in Britain released video footage of an apparent road-rage incident between an angry woman and a man on a bicycle on a country lane, ITV News reported Monday.
The clip shows a man wearing Wellington boots and flat-cap cycling along the narrow road when he is approached by a woman on foot, who appears to throw punches and kicks.
Police have issued the video, which was shot by someone in a car following the pair and posted on YouTube, as part of an appeal for witnesses of the January 28 incident in the western England county of Gloucestershire.
Some reports on Monday suggested there could be more to the altercation than meets the eye.
ITV News said longer versions of the clip include allegations that the cyclist was deliberately blocking traffic because he was a supporter of fox-hunting and wanted to stop anti-hunt campaigners reaching their destination.
Fox-hunting – a British country pursuit which involves tracking, chasing and killing foxes - was outlawed in 2005. But hunting by a smell or trail is still lawful and monitored by anti-hunt campaigners, according to the Daily Telegraph.
Police have appealed for the pair captured on the film to come forward.
