When parking is at a premium downtown, people can get crazy! When two drivers claimed the same spot in downtown Denver, Colorado, a tense stand off began. A passenger in one car jumped out and stood in the way to block a woman backing into the space.

Who's at Fault?

Woman in Denver denies a parking spot to a driver downtown because she was 'holding the spot' for another driver who had not arrived yet.

"Move it, Lady!" the woman yelled at the driver of the white SUV. "You're going run me over. Fine. I'm calling the police right now."

After both driver and pedestrian stood their ground, the man driving the other car got and insisted he was getting the parking spot. "I've got all day, so if you don't want to move I can stay here all day," he said.

But the SUV stayed in reverse gear, edging back slowly.

"You're going to physically run me over?" yelled the female pedestrian.

The video, which quickly got hundreds of thousands of views on Facebook, stopped before situation was resolved. But what would you do? Who was right?
