Wednesday morning, a Home Depot parking lot in Tampa was the site of a physical fight involving four grown men hurling open cans of paint at each other.

A video of the incident was captured by bystanders, and has since gone viral. In the clip, a large man is seen slinging a can of white paint, while another fights off the other men with a shovel.

Speaking to Creative Loafing Tampa Bay, a spokesperson with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the video and said officers responded to the Town and Country Home Depot, located at 6730 Memorial Hwy, on Wednesday, May 20, a little before 9 a.m.

The men told officers that they were in fact co-workers, and they declined to press charges, says the spokesperson.

As of now, it’s unknown exactly what started the paint fight.
