Willmar police say a fight at a busy intersection in Willmar during rush hour yesterday appears to have stemmed from a road rage incident among people who knew each other.
The fight occurred around 4:30 p.m. on a service road next to the intersection of Highway 12 and Lakeland Drive.
A 41-year-old father and his 19-year-old son along with another 18-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of second-degree probable assault with dangerous weapons, according to the police report. A 22-year-old man who appears to be related to the 18-year-old was also issued a citation.
The 41-year-old is also facing a pending charge of liability for crime to others.
Ten officers responded to the scene, records show.
Each of the men were treated for injuries — caused by weapons including a baseball bat — before being taken into custody, according to the police report.
"It sounds like it was a road rage incident between some people who knew each other. Other family members got involved. There were multiple cars involved," Felt said on the radio.
