These Videos Of A Massive Brawl At A Toyota Dealership Leave Us With More Questions Than Answers (UPDATED WITH POLICE STATEMENT)

A video showing apparent employees of a dealership in California involved in an all-out brawl is making the rounds on the internet. And while I don’t have a ton of information to give you about what precipitated the melee, I can show you the video itself, which is rather absurd.

Update (April 17, 2023 6:15 P.M. ET): I discussed the situation with the Milpitas Police Department. Its representative didn’t have a whole lot to tell me other than that on April 8 “there was a call about a fight. It was between some employees that work [at the dealership].” By the time police had arrived, some parties had already left, so officers are now “contacting people and conducting their investigation.” No medical aid was needed.

This all went down at Envision Toyota of Milpitas near San Jose (I confirmed this by finding images of the dealership’s showroom, which contains the beautiful vintage car wall-graphics you see in the clip), apparently sometime earlier this month. The clearest video of the altercation comes from Twitter user “ange,” whom I reached out to for more information. Until I hear back, this tweet (which contains tags implying that the fight involved a sales manager or sales managers) are all we have. Have a look at the brawl:

Here are some quotes from the video based on what I can hear (some of the words are difficult to decipher amongst all the hoopla):

“Cut this shit out, cut this shit out right now.” — This seems to come from an unknown person in the room.

These words appear to perhaps come from the white-shirted big guy involved in the fight, though again, it’s not clear:

“You saw what I did to that punk-ass.”

“Mother f*ckers (trying to jump me?)”

“[indecipherable]…drop you, motherf*cker”

And these terms seem be coming from someone in a position of leadership:

“I’m telling you guys [indecipherable]… you guys all gonna go in jail right now.”

“I just called the cops, you wanna be here [indecipherable]…go in jail you can go or leave the lot right now.”

Someone named Ebereto Chan posted to Facebook a video showing a different angle and a little more of the tail end of the fight. Here it is (open it in full-screen):

What started the fight? Who are the parties involved? To these, we don’t have answers. All we have are tweets from ange, the apparent shooter of that top video in the tweet. Here’s what she — someone who “just wanted [her] car serviced” writes in her Twitter thread:

This one’s actually quite funny:

Again, nobody has details on this; even ange isn’t sure what caused the fight, with her Twitter thread being full of only rumors and jokes:

I’ve reached out to the dealership and to the local police. The former has not responded to my inquiries, and the latter told me it doesn’t yet have a press release to show regarding such an incident, and that police records are not available at this time. (It’s unclear if police records exist. I’ll find out when the office opens tomorrow). If anyone has details on this situation, please email tips@autopian.com.

I thought Toyota Safety Sense was supposed to prevent this from happening.

I’ve known of dealerships that offer a discount on hail-damaged inventory…is there a discount here if the vehicle you want has been brawled upon?
