Video footage appears to show a young man involved in a heated exchange with the conductor, before walking out of the open tram doors.

However, in the footage, he can be seen re-entering the tram amid shouting.

While passengers attempt to keep distance between the conductor and the passenger, he manages to put the conductor in a headlock.
