    A still from the video depicts an argument gone wrong on the 20 Columbus, which has lead to a Muni investigation of the driver.

    Everyone in San Francisco loves complaining about Muni, but a sensational video posted on YouTube showed ugly tensions flaring up.

    And now the Municipal Transportation Agency is looking into the incident, which occured on the 20-Columbus line.

    The video depicts two women screaming at each other, and ends in a fist fight.

    A passenger eventually broke it up, though at least one egged the pair on in Cantonese, according to a translation.

    Drivers are supposed to report incidents like this at the end of their shift, but frankly, it's a pretty typical scene for anyone familiar with the neighborhood.

    Buses running through Chinatown and North Beach are often jam-packed, and run incredibly slowly, leaving riders frustrated and likely late to their destinations.

    Still, if you think that's ugly, just sit back and watch the long-running fights over the Central Subway boondoggle.

    Hell hath no wrath like a Telegraph Hill dweller or Chinatown powerbroker scorned.

    Jackson West is more surprised that anyone was actually able to find a 20-Columbus.
