There are no winners in this story. A man who was caught on video beating the breaks off the husband of a woman he got into an argument with on an NYC train has turned himself in. 

Of course it was caught on video.

Reports Gothamist:

The man who was caught on video beating up a woman’s boyfriend after the two had engaged in a spirited verbal argument over subway etiquette has been arrested. Patrick Crow, 34, turned himself into police in the Bronx over a week after the subway brawl video was passed around the internet. He has been charged with misdemeanor assault, harassment and menacing.

The incident happened around 3:30 p.m. on January 20th on a northbound 5 train at the Jackson Avenue station. Crow got into an argument with fellow straphanger Queen Muhammad over a seat—Muhammad claimed that Crow was manspreading but she tried to sit down anyway, and both allegedly started elbowing each other, which led to more passive-aggressive leg spreading.

The tension boiled over, and Crow claims Muhammad spit in his face. In turn, Crow admitted he beat Muhammad’s husband, Tesfa Walters. “I didn’t want to do it, I was provoked,” Crow told the News earlier this week. He ended up losing his job as a tax preparer for Jackson Hewitt because of the viral video, which he very much regrets: “I was in a different mind frame at that point. I should have been a bigger person and moved off to another side. She took me out of my character.”

Crow ultimately was wrong for putting hands on homie, but let’s consider the depths of the struggle that led to the delivery of a potent fade.

In the video, it is clear that Muhammad is acting a fool, while straphangers plead with her to let the trains doors go so they can get to their destinations.

At one point, Muhammad’s husband even tells her to chill out (no, she didn’t listen to him).

There is also a moment where it looks and sounds like she does indeed spit at Crow.

To Crow’s credit, rather than bless a woman with the fade, he took out all his anger on said woman’s husband.

The husband then proceeded to get mollywhopped.

So clearly, the husband should be feeling a ways about his out of pocket wife. Then again, it looks like she outweighs him by 100 pounds and she has a face tattoo…so he might be scared of her.
