Living in apartment can sometimes be challenging especially if you have loud neighbours, who sometimes may cause noise pollution as a result.
A man who was reportedly fed up with his neighbour disturbing the peace decided to give the latter a piece of his mind by turning up at his door and confronting him, leading to an all-out brawl.
Man fights neighbour at Johor apartment over noise pollution
In a one-minute video which has spread on social media like wildfire, it began with a middle-aged man hitting his neighbour’s metal grille door with a wooden stick.
Both the man and his neighbour could be heard exchanging vulgarities at the top of their lungs. A shoe rack was also thrown towards the neighbour’s door in the midst of it.
As the argument escalated, the neighbour unlocked the metal grille door and picked up the shoe rack before throwing it towards the man.
The duo then traded blows with each other, where the neighbour managed to land a punch squarely on the man’s face despite other residents trying to break them apart.
It is believed that the brawl was sparked by the man’s dissatisfaction over being disturbed by his neighbour, who often made loud noises at the apartment complex located in Tampoi, Johor.
