A video showing a man assaulting and yelling profanities at a security guard is going viral on social media
In the four-minute-long video, the man can be seen slapping the security guard so forcefully that it causes the latter's cap to fall off his head.
"You like to make trouble, don't you?" the man scolded, using vulgar words.
"People hire you to become a jaga (security guard), you become a jaga. Why do you cause so many problems?"
It is believed that the man's vehicle was clamped for parking at a spot reserved for another condominium owner. He claims that his parking spot was taken by someone else.
The security guard tries to explain that it was his boss's instruction to clamp the man's vehicle
However, the man does not believe that and says it was the security guard's doing to make his life difficult, before adding that even it was his boss's order, he could still make a decision himself.
"My parking spot has been taken by another vehicle. You go clamp it now," the agitated man orders in Cantonese.
At the end of the video, the man can be heard threatening someone on the other end of the security guard's phone call. He says he does not mind going to jail for the things he would do to the person.
"You better don't let me know what car you drive, I will burn it to the ground," the man yelled into the phone.
"If I want to do something bad to you, I will do it to you."
