Twitter user Otto Dinero tweeted the video in the early hours of Sunday morning, writing, “Plot twist literally.”
The video has been viewed more than 1.9 million times.
Throughout the 51-second video, two younger males can be seen pummeling each other on a public street. What appears to be a police officer rushes the two and deftly breaks up the fight.
The apparent aggressor begins hitting and swinging at the officer, but the officer appears to respond only with defensive action and is ultimately able to subdue the suspect.
At the end of the video, the police officer helps the young suspect to his feet and claps him on the back as they put their arms around each other and breathlessly walk away from the scene.
The user told TheBlaze that the incident recently took place in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia, and escalated after the two men in the beginning of the video engaged in a verbal disagreement.
