Police break up fight on Philip Ave. Tell North Platte what you think

Police responded to a complaint Thursday morning on Philip Ave. and found two men fighting in the street.

Officers arrived around 8 a.m. at 1300 block of West Philip where Scott Trueblood, 27, and Robert Brown, 57, were fighting.

Both their cars were parked nearby with broken windows, police spokesman John Deal said.

In speaking with the men as well as the witness, the officers determined that the argument began at Philip and McDonald, a four-way stop intersection.

Deal said the men had a dispute over who had the right-of-way and narrowly avoided a collision.

Both vehicles ended up eastbound on Philip and the men began motioning to one another to pull over, Deal said.

Deal said Trueblood allegedly waved some sort of a club out of the window, which turned out to be a wooden tire pressure gauge, and Brown allegedly flipped Trueblood off.

After driving a couple blocks, both men pulled over and "a physical altercation ensued," Deal said. In the course of the fight, a window on Brown's vehicle as well as a window on Trueblood's vehicle were broken, Deal said.

Both men had minor injuries, believed to be caused from the assault and the broken windows, he said.

Police found probable cause to cite both men for third-degree mutual assault. They were cited and released.
