WARNING - Video contains violence some may find distressing

THIS is the shocking moment a Glasgow taxi driver and a woman got involved in a violent fight in the street.

The incident took place on South Frederick Street, just off George Square.

With the city’s huge ‘People Make Glasgow’ slogan in the background, a raging woman is seen repeatedly kicking the cab driver’s door.

He then gets out of his car and they both exchange kicks and blows. The male driver then pins the woman against a wall.

A passer-by in a yellow jacket pleads with the pair to stop. She can be heard shouting: “Stop it!”

One man behind the camera can be heard saying: “Friggin’ Glasgow.” Another man with an American accent adds: “That’s not good.”

The video has been circulating and shared widely across social media this week. As of yet, the source of the video and when it was taken are unknown.

The fight lasts for around six minutes before two police officers finally approach the pair.

The identity of the taxi driver is unknown. However, this was not a Glasgow Taxis vehicle or driver. 

A Glasgow City Council spokesman said: “We are aware of this incident and are investigating.”

Police Scotland did not provide any comment when approached by the Evening Times.
