A disturbing Metro ride is caught on camera and ends with a man attacking a woman who was recording a hate-filled argument between passengers.

The passengers called each other homophobic and racial slurs. And the woman who recorded it all is talking exclusively with ABC7.

The woman who shot the video says she's ridden Metro for five years and has never seen or heard anything like it.

She says it began at the L'Enfant Plaza station and continued all the way to Anacostia.

Sarah Fox says the man she captured in her cell phone video appears to have started it all. When he realized she was recording the argument, he "smacked the phone out of my hand," she says.

Metro Transit Police have contacted the Brandywine man believed to have started it all and are investigating.
