Wild video caught a terrifying fight at the TikTok-famous New Jersey motel that is a haven for the homeless — ending with a car being repeatedly driven into one of the brawlers.
The fight erupted early Wednesday as one of the men helped an evicted pal move out of the troubled Lincoln Tunnel Motel, according to NBC New York, which obtained surveillance footage.
He immediately started fighting with another man who arrived, with the footage showing the pair wrestling and throwing punches as several others watch on.
At one point, the pair fall to the ground — but keep brawling outside the motel famed for helping the homeless.
Shockingly, one of the men gets into a Mercedes — and repeatedly drives it at the other, who appears to have been hit in the legs, but fled alive before cops could get there.
The same car then backed into a responding police vehicle. Eventually, the suspect gets out — with hands up and a bloodied face.
Ariam Ante, 42, was later charged with assault by auto, aggravated assault, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose — his vehicle — as well as burglary and theft, police told NJ.com.
“This is a serious incident,” North Bergen Police Capt. David Dowd told NBC, saying that the video suggested the victim was struck by the car “at least three, potentially four, times.”
“The victim was extremely lucky to walk away with not life-threatening injuries,” he said.
However, the victim never came forward, so the severity of his injuries remains unknown, police said.
The Lincoln Tunnel Motel has been dubbed the TikTok Motel because of the viral account of co-owner Brian Acosta Arya, 35, detailing his efforts to help get people off the streets.
For police, however, it remains notorious for the wrong reasons.
“We respond routinely — about three times a day,” Dowd said, detailing how they responded there 2,705 times between January 2020 and March 2022 — more than any of the other 13 motels and hotels in the township.
Arya was working during Wednesday’s fight — and said that hours earlier another irate customer used a brick to smash windows, including the motel owner’s own car.
“This is pretty scary but we’re trying to clean up this place,” Arya told NBC, saying it would not deter his mission to help those in need.
