A quarrel reportedly involving an Indonesian Military (TNI) member occurred on Jl. Pemuda in Rawamangun, East Jakarta, on Friday afternoon.

In a video that has since gone viral, the member of the military is seen fighting with the driver of a car. The fight reportedly ensued after the car driver was seen throwing trash on the street. The trash hit the TNI member's wife, who was riding a motorcycle with him.

After the TNI member stopped the car, he and the driver began fighting.

Jakarta Police spokesperson Sr. Comr. Argo Yuwono confirmed the incident.

“We are coordinating with the military police [to settle the case],” he said as quoted by kompas.com.


Separately, Navy spokesman Col. Gig Jonias Mozes Sipasulta said that both men involved in the fighting were Navy personnel.

“The case has been resolved because they are part of military family,” he said. (ecn)
