Altercation over cigarette leaves one man dead


A man has died after an altercation with a woman who tossed her cigarette out of a car in Burnaby, British Columbia, according to news reports.

Michael Page-Vincelli, 22, watched the woman throw the cigarette butt and then he picked it up and threw it back at her.

The woman, accompanied by another man, then followed Page-Vincelli into a nearby Starbucks, exiting “two minutes later,” a witness said.

When the witness went inside the coffee shop to see what was going on, he saw Page-Vincelli lying on the floor and bleeding profusely.

Eyewitnesses inside the Starbucks told the reporters that Page-Vincelli was punched and fell to the ground, hitting his head on the counter on the way down.

He was rushed to a nearby hospital where he passed away three days later.

The death is being investigated as a homicide but no charges have been filed, according to police.
