Character kills a gang who's drowning his friend.

Saw this movie on tv circa 2008, but I think it was older than that, 90s or earlier. A guy (the main character) and his friend get aproached by a gang a guys who start a fight with them. The gang holds his head in an outdoor fountain in the water. He loses consciousness,when he awakes he finds that his friend has killed them with a pocket knife?

There also may have been an abusive father who threw something at his son? But I honestly can't remember. I saw this when I was a kid and it really disturbed me.

One more thing, this one is quite odd, I feel like in one scene there was a couch that was tipped over? not sure how helpful that is,haha.

Sorry for how little i remember and thanks in advanced!
