One woman pushes the man away but he then retaliates by shoving her and spraying his drink in one woman’s face.

The street performer, furious at the man for disrupting his show, knocks him to the floor before dragging him away to cheers from the crowd. 

The video was shot by Martin Johnson, 53, who works as a security guard and noticed the altercation break out while he was recording the performance.

‘We all had our phones out ready to record the show but I noticed a man arguing with two women,’ Martin, who was on his lunch break at the time.

‘One of the ladies took offence to the man getting too close to her young daughter so after numerous warnings, she went to grab him but he threw his drink on her which resulted in her swinging him to the floor.

‘He got to his feet and tried to retaliate but there was around four or five other women standing in his way so instead, he decided to take his rage out on the fire runner’s ring of fire by kicking it.

‘But, the fiery ring fell straight on top of him as the crowd gasped and screamed.

‘The flame runner pauses the show in horror and runs over to make sure the ring of fire is put out and pushes the man onto his back and drags him away from the scene.’

Leicestershire Police said they were not called to the incident but that shortly before 6.30pm they received a call from a man stating he had been assaulted.

Officers found that man and he was later taken home.
