Police have laid a number of charges against a man in his 20s, after a traffic incident escalated to a fight Thursday morning.
Investigators said the incident happened just before 8 a.m. Thursday, in the area of 107 Avenue and 106 Street.
It’s believed two vehicles – one with a 27-year-old man behind the wheel, the other with a 56-year-old man driving – nearly collided in that intersection.
Afterwards, the drivers reportedly started arguing, which escalated into a fight.
Then, it’s alleged the 27-year-old grabbed a baseball bat from his own vehicle, and hit the other man with it.
Passing Traffic Sherriff intervened, and arrested the younger man – he was held until police arrived.
The 56-year-old man suffered minor injuries.
Police have charged Alaa Al-Thehaiby, 27, with assault, assault with a weapon and possession of a weapon dangerous to the public.
