Fruit Sellers Fight It Out With Watermelons

Fruit Sellers Fight It Out With Watermelons

Things got messy when these two Chinese watermelon vendors started slugging it out and throwing watermelons at each other in the city of Taicang in China’s eastern coastal province of Jiangsu.

The angry scenes happened after weeks of bickering between Cai Cheng, who has a store selling watermelons, and Fai Kuo, who usually parks down the road and sells water melons on the street from the back of his three wheeler.

Cai said he had repeatedly called police about the unlicensed rival who was stealing his business, but the other man always drove off when they arrived.

In the end when he returned after yet another escape from the police, Cai flipped out, and the two started a heated argument that ended when they Cai used Fai's watermelons as a weapon and then the two started punching each other.

The CCTV images show the two fighting in the street shortly before they were both arrested and detained by police. Police say it is likely both men will face a fine.

Worse, with both no longer selling watermelons, a third seller has now moved in on the patch and reportedly is making a fortune selling to the other men's customers - this time without competition.
