The video below starts out like any other Thursday night on the subway, or in this case the Edmonton Transit train in Canada. One would assume that the young woman featured in the YouTube clip was having a bad day or maybe just one drink too many during happy hour? That is until she seems to become “possessed” and decides to attack an innocent Pringles-eating passenger. Below is footage of the woman prior to the attack in which she seems to be having issues with her necklace:
Once her necklace is off, she seems to calm down and decides to take out her phone. Moments after her phone back in her purse is when the “possession” begins:
She strikes out at the man, grabbing his neck and attempting to punch him in the face, and later, grabbing his ponytail. This obviously angers the man who in turn gets up to go after her and retaliate. The woman filming the video tries to dissuade the man by saying, “Hey, hey hey. She’s probably f**king possessed.” Unfortunately, this was not enough to stop the altercation and it leads to an intervention by ETS security. Much like a possum, the girl quickly falls to the floor as soon as security arrive on the scene.
The ETS says transit officers were doing their rounds at Churchill Station when the incident occurred and were able to respond quickly.
Both people were fined $500 for fighting in public.
“Fighting on the transit is a rare occurrence.” said Cheryl Oxford, a spokesperson with the City of Edmonton. I guess had they been in a hockey rink, this would have ended differently?
