This is the moment a screaming woman spits, assaults and throws traffic cones at council workers trying to tow her illegally-parked car who then change their mind and let her off.
The incident was filmed in Bandar Baru Sungai Buloh in the city of Shah Alam located in the western Malaysian state of Selangor and the footage was later shared on Twitter where it has been viewed over 540,000 times in less than a day.
According to local media, her vehicle was parked on a white line that indicates ‘no parking’.

In the footage, the screaming woman is seen attacking council workers trying to tow her car away.
Despite parking illegally, the woman hits the workers and even spits at one man.
She is also seen taking a traffic cone before hurling it at them.
According to local media, the workers eventually decided to let the screaming woman off and unclamped her vehicle.
A city council spokesperson confirmed the incident took place and that the motorist prevented the tow team from carrying out their roles.
It is unclear what made the unnamed woman behave in such a manner.
Netizens had a lot to say about the woman’s public tantrum, with one Twitter user commenting: “Ok, so that’s how you get let off, I understand it all now.”
Another netizen wrote: “Double standards, if a man behaved like that he would be beaten and arrested!”
