(WKYC) A dramatic confrontation between an Ohio man and his ex-wife's boyfriend ends with the man accidentally shooting his current wife in the back.

The exchange and shooting last August 25, are all captured on cell phone video.

Geauga County Sheriff's deputies say Tony Molchak, of Solon, was dropping off his daughter at his ex-wife's home in Chardon. He argued with Gary Schussler, the boyfriend of ex-wife, Diane Molchak, on the front lawn.

The video, shot by Molchak's current wife, Shelley, shows Molchak throwing the first punch at Schussler.

Schussler then pulls a gun from a back holster. He's seen in the video, kicking Shelley Molchak and her cell phone. As the two men scuffle, Schussler drops his gun, and Molchak seizes on the opportunity.
