Differing perspectives Sean Avery, a retired NHL star, unleashed the beast in this surreal caught-on-camera altercation in Los Angeles that resulted in a man’s car mirror hanging.

Avery creeps up behind the man’s sedan, the man slows down, and pulls to the side of the street, according to the video obtained by TMZ from the car owner. Avery, clad in an all-white jogging outfit, approaches the driver’s side of the vehicle and tries to pull open the driver’s door while grinning and not saying a word.

Niku Azam, the driver, shuts his door and rolls down his window to call Avery a “psychopath”. As Azam squawks the horn, Avery races across towards the front of the car and remains in front of it, while keeping that creepy smile.

Avery then strikes the guy in the left car mirror before fleeing away.

And according to research, this was not the first time the two men had clashed. Azam said that he had accidentally blocked the path for Avery in February and that when he let him by, the former New York Ranger screamed numerous times, “Slow down, you fat f**k.”

According to Azam, Avery remembered him from the February altercation that sparked this altercation.

Avery says he was the suspect of the case in another video captured by TMZ, claiming he was struck by a vehicle earlier and the man tried to “run him over,” but there is no proof of this in the previous video.
