Chaos erupted at a Florida polling site Tuesday when a male Hillary Clinton supporter and a female Donald Trump supporter got into a nasty fight that escalated into punches and pepper-spraying.

The melee broke out between Tom Garrecht, 52, and Donna Tatlici, 58, at the Jupiter Community Center, The Palm Beach Post reports.

Tatlici was handing out Trump literature when Garrecht, arrived to cast his ballot and allegedly screamed at her, "I don’t need anyone to tell me who to vote for," according to the newspaper.

Tatlici said Garrecht later exited the center he "came right into my face," and began yelling expletives.

As the shouting escalated, Tatlici pepper-sprayed him, after which he allegedly slammed her to the ground and "started punching" her, The Post reported.

Garrecht told The Post he was upset because he thought Trump supporters were intimidating voters, but made "childish insults that I probably shouldn’t have."

The state attorney's office will decide whether to file assault charges against Garrecht.
