It’s been two weeks since bikes and e-scooters were forced to share Tampa public spaces, and now we have our first documented street fight between the two modes of transportation.

In a recent video posted to Twitter by Jen Castrogiovanni on Saturday, June 8, an apparent brawl can be seen between a bicyclist and a group of people on e-scooters at the intersection of Willow Avenue S. and Azeele Street in South Tampa.

As of now, it’s unclear exactly what happened to instigate the fight. "My speculation is that the scooterist got in the way of the bike," said Castrogiovanni to WFLAHowever, authorities did investigated the incident shortly after the video was shot, but no arrests were made.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, since their debut two weeks ago, numerous complaints have come in regarding people breaking the rules (riding scooters on streets, driving too fast, etc) but no e-scooter-related injuries have been reported. 

Be safe out there, folks.
