A nasty fight by neighbors has taken social media by storm. The violence erupted Sunday afternoon at an apartment complex in Huntington Beach.

Video captured by neighbor Sarah Oliver from her upstairs window shows 47-year-old Laura Cox pushing her common law husband out of his wheelchair. She then gets behind the wheel and backs into the wheelchair, twice.

"Insanity. I felt really bad for him, so I called the cops," Oliver said.

Cox ended up behind bars and was charged with driving under the influence. But her common law husband, who did not want to be identified, said the video is misleading and his wheelchair was not broken.

"I wasn't hit. It was a thing of just trying to stop someone from drinking and driving," he said.

He said Cox suffers from mental illness and had stopped her medication and started drinking.

The incident isn't the first time Oliver has captured bizarre behavior and loud fights, but she feared this time someone could get hurt.

"This was kind of more serious. It was always something I showed to friends to kind of laugh, like 'Look at my crazy neighbors.' Now, it's turned into this," Oliver said.
