Vancouver Police say they responded to a report of a man who smashed the window of a Drake Towing vehicle Monday morning. 

Cst. Tania Visintin tells Vancouver Is Awesome in an email that police responded to the call just after 11 a.m. in a parking lot at 3490 Kingsway Avenue. 

"The suspect was having his car towed from the parking lot when he approached the tow truck and smashed the driver’s side window with a hammer," writes Visintin. 

Once police arrived, the suspect was arrested and taken to jail. 

Thankfully, no one was injured in the altercation.

A video of the incident has also been shared on Reddit by seansethi81. In it, a man argues with the driver of a Drake Towing vehicle who appears to be towing his car.

At one point, the man smashes the tow truck driver's window with a hammer and begins to yell at him and tells him to, "come here." The tow truck driver tells him to, "move back," and to, "stay away from me."

Another individual also repeatedly tells the man who is yelling at the tow truck driver to, "calm down." 

The final frame of the video shows the man that was yelling being arrested.
