A 25-year-old man was arrested for rioting after he was taken to hospital following a fight at Orchard Road on Mar 10.

In an earlier Stomp report, a man was seen on video swinging an empty glass liquor bottle at another man at the junction of Orchard Road and Claymore Road, next to Orchard Towers.

Stomper Reaz alerted Stomp to another video posted on Facebook that picks up where the last video ended with one of the men bending down to pick up the bottle that was thrown by the other guy.

In the second video, he is seen throwing the bottle at the other guy.

A third man then enters the fray and throws punches at the man who threw the bottle.

He is then pushed backward where he makes contact with a moving bus.

He is then seen clutching at his back in pain.
