According to a video clip taken at the scene, the passenger of the Ferrari, a Singaporean in his 40s wearing a white T-shirt threw a punch at the pedestrian first, prompting his friends to rush over to defend him.
The Ferrari driver and the passenger are currently assisting the police in its investigations. It is not known if the other five men seen whacking the Singaporean uncle together will be charged as well.
