A road rage incident in Timaru is thought to have started a fight between two men armed with baseball and cricket bats.
A police spokeswoman said multiple people called in to report the fight on Douglas St about 11.55am on Friday.
Witnesses told police the fight may have started due to a road rage incident, but police were yet to confirm this was the case, she added.
One man was arrested and charged with assault with a weapon and possession of an offensive weapon, appearing in Timaru District Court on Friday afternoon.
