Two Gay Men Take Lover’s Quarrel to Phoenix Freeway


Two gay men who were in an argument at Phoenix’s Metro Center Mall risked killing themselves and motorists as they took their fight to the I-17 Freeway at rush hour. One of them had reportedly threatened to commit suicide. They were arrested shortly thereafter.

KPHO reports: “An Arizona Department of Transportation traffic camera caught the men exchanging blows on I-17 between the Peoria and Dunlap exits as one vehicle after another narrowly missed hitting the couple. The Black Canyon Highway is one of Phoenix’s busiest interstates…Some drivers got out of their cars and yelled at them. Miraculously, neither man was hit by any of the vehicles, officers said.”

KPHO’s print report does not mention their relationship, although the video broadcast does.
