A video emerged online showing a couple of elderly men creating a ruckus and trying to fight with each other at a hawker centre.
The incident purportedly happened at Tekka Hawker Centre, and involved two elderly men, who were shouting Hokkien vulgarities at each other.
One of the uncles was seen trying to physically attack the other old man but was stopped by an elderly woman, who was desperately trying to de-escalate the situation.
The two uncles were also seen swinging their hands at each other, albeit missing each other, as the confrontation’s commotion filled the air.
According to Chapter 224 of the Penal Code, anyone who disturbs public peace by fighting in public is guilty of committing an affray.
Upon conviction, offenders could face a jail term of up to one year and/or a fine of up to $5,000.
Anyone who makes any noise in excess that is likely to cause annoyance or inconvenience to others in the vicinity or in any public setting could face fines of up to $1,000.
