NEW YORK (CIRCA via STORYFUL) — Police were called to the 36th street subway station in Brooklyn early Tuesday morning after a woman used racist language and became aggressive aboard a packed D train.

Viral videos posted on Twitter show the woman repeatedly yelling expletives at a woman standing beside her. Seemingly unprompted, she starts trying to kick the woman and tries to hit her with an umbrella. Other passengers intervene. The woman then uses a racial slur.

The man who recorded this video also posted a photo of himself detaining the woman “until the cops showed up," he wrote. His last photo shows the woman in police custody.
