SICAMOUS - A video making the rounds on Facebook has people downright pissed.
It all started when a group of men were reportedly relieving themselves on Main Street in Sicamous, across the road from a high school. Brent Graf, the man who shot the video, says he was picking up his daughters at the time.
A student stepped up to confront the men, Graf says, which led to a physical altercation. He says one man started beating on the student.
Graf posted the video online with the hope 'it will make it back to their families so they can see what kind of men… they are.'
The video shows Alberta license plates on the men’s vehicles and had been shared over 3,500 times as of the early afternoon of April 22.
Sicamous RCMP are investigating the incident and Sgt. Scott West says officers are reviewing Graf’s video.
“Our office will be following up with the registered owners of these vehicles in an attempt to determine who the occupants were,” West said in a statement. “Once all the facts are in, a decision on charges will be made.”
No one involved suffered any major injuries, West said. He added the public is always urged to obtain information that can be provided to police, but said when a verbal confrontation is escalating, it’s best to withdraw and call the RCMP, or in some cases 'just to mediate.'

Please share this video...... This afternoon when I was picking up my daughters from school these guys pulled up and pissed in front of the school. A brave student confronted them and the guy in the in the blue jacket jumped out and started beating on the kidin the white shirt. This is where my video starts......I hope if it is shared enough it will make it back to their families so they can see what kind of men(pigs) they are.......and yes the shell gas station is across the street
