I couldn't hear the audio of the exchange of words or what set the guy off. But the GG (?) could of left. I don't know if he provoked the man with words but neither have any fighting skills at all. The gg (?) would have done well with pepper spray and a little hand to hand training. He had numerous chances to put the hurt on the aggressor had he chose too. He stated he didn't fight back for fear of going to jail (this makes wonder if he felt he provoked the guy) or getting hurt worse. I do not like that mentality.
If I couldn't leave or was surprised and suddenly punched by that guy I would have taken the fight out of him quickly and waited for police. Not by shooting the guy or drawing either. I know some people can't fight back due to age or health reasons thats why they must be good at de-escalation and have less than lethal options. I would of loved for the gg (?) to hose the guy down with CS spray or see him deploy a taser and lay the aggressor out.
If anyone can hear the audio did the gg (?) say anything to provoke the guy and what was the aggressor upset about?
