Cellphone video caught the moment things got ugly between an SUV driver trying to get home and several motorcyclists involved in a Black Lives Matter march.

And it all went down in Stillwater, Minnesota — population about 20,000 and around 30 minutes east of Minneapolis.

What happened?

Video posted Saturday to Twitter begins with the angry driver exiting his vehicle after apparently trying to left turn on Stillwater Avenue — but police told TheBlaze Monday that the trio of bikers in front him were trying to make a left as well.

A fourth biker actually had already turned left and was past the driver's vehicle on the other street:

The bikers may have been expecting the driver to back up or get out the way; they certainly didn't seem to be giving him a passage.

But not this time. The driver began yelling at the bikers that "I live here!" and pointed down the road.

With that a large biker in a dark vest — who stood a few inches taller than the motorist — appeared to challenge the driver and told him, "I don't give a f***." But the driver got up in the biker's face and moved forward on him until the biker shoved the driver.

Then a bigger shoving match ensued:

And by the time police arrived, the motorist may have appeared to be the aggressor:

Because police took the motorist away:

Here's the clip. Content warning: Language:

Police told TheBlaze on Monday that they detained the driver briefly, got him and his vehicle home safely after the march went through the intersection, and that there were no charges, citations, or arrests. Police also told TheBlaze that it's commonplace for streets to be blocked during marches.

Oh, there's more

There are two other videos showing the march. In one video, a woman on a megaphone tells the marchers about "an angry motorist who refused to move his car. The police were on the scene, and lo and behold, a miracle of God, they took him away, put him in the back of a squad car, they moved his vehicle out of the street so we can peacefully continue our march!"

And in the other clip, a man on a megaphone hollers at residents, "If you think black lives matter, you can come march with us, you can come join us. If you don't, you can stay up at your house. You can stay up in your driveway looking at us like we're doing something crazy when we're just here trying to fight for our lives."
