COMPTON, Calif. - A video showing an bizarre confrontation between a tow truck driver and and an angry crowbar-wielding man is making the rounds on the internet.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department told KTLA the truck was towing away a repossessed car when the registered owner noticed it being taken away and started yelling at the truck's driver. After the driver explained the situation to the owner, the man began to show "aggressive behavior".

The driver got back into the tow truck and attempted to leave the area, however the car's owner then made his way onto the back of the tow truck and began bashing the rear windows with a crowbar.

Video posted online shows the repossessed car dragging its front end behind the tow truck while the owner continues to swing away at the truck's windows.

Authorities eventually caught up with the two and both were questioned. Officials say there's a chance that the crowbar-wielding man may face vandalism charges.
