A motorist who performed a smoke-creating wheelspin as the final word in an argument with a cyclist has had a warrant issued for his arrest in the United Arab Emirates.
The pimped silver Mercedes is seen in a YouTube video already embroiled in a row with a cyclist, who shouts: "The ladies saw you my friend.
"Get the **** out of here before I smash your car."
The motorist revs the engine and speeds off, leaving a cloud of smoke in his wake and tyre marks that are said to measure 47 metres long.
Adam Canfield, who uploaded the clip to YouTube, said: "This Mercedes CLK63 AMG Black Series frequently enjoyed showing off with slides and wheelspins.
"However, when he got into an argument with a cyclist, he performed a huge burnout.
"I'm not entirely sure what happened to start the argument.
"All I saw is the Mercedes pull out and the cyclist swerve - so something along those lines.
"The cyclist was shouting at some girls on the pavement calling them witnesses, if you were wondering.
"We measured the number 11 track the CLK made on the road at roughly 47 meters long.”
But Gulf News has reported that “an arrest warrant has been issued for a man accused of driving recklessly in a European country thereby endangering his life and the lives of others.”
The car's number place was traced to the UAE. The Emirati man is accused of recklessly performing stunts and “intentionally making loud noises [using his car] to attract attention”, court documents revealed.
The Prosecution stated that Emiratis can be held accountable for a crime they commit outside the country, if the deed is against UAE law, in case they were not tried in court in the foreign country.
Abu Dhabi attorney-general Ali Mohammad Al Beloushi urged UAE citizens to abide by rules and regulations when visiting other countries.
Following the warrant, Mr Canfield said: "I would like to point out that I am aware of the recent implications that this video has lead to, and would like to express that I did certainly not want that to happen as a result.
"No negative view of the driver or cyclist was meant from this video - I just wanted to share the exciting scene I witnessed."

Before the internet they wrote letters to local newspapers (RIP), I understand that green ink was compulsory.
UPDATE!! Some poor young man has been arrested due to this car taking a tumble. The good news is he was released on unconditional bail....
Aye! It's tough for drivers oop in t'North. In Lancashire, even the MOT testing garages can't afford MOTs!
Slow news day?
It's more DuckDuckGo-fu (which is probably closer to being Bing-fu)
Don't get me wrong - I'd love to pay a visit and if I lived there I'm pretty sure I'd use the paths where suitable for my cycle journeys....
Maybe they'll employ some sniffer dogs? Note - it's the City of London rather than being London, the city which would be much better.
I would definitely recommend looking at the hase pino, they do a kit to put kid sized pedals on the front so your child can participate. But unlike...
The TQ HPR50 motor is so small that is must be rattling around inside that huge bottom bracket area. I suppose it is some kind of inflection point...
I use a cat ear. I'm profoundly deaf in the right hand side, and it helps with all round awarness with just the one ear.
