UPDATE: New Jersey State Police said they arrested two men following a fistfight on the Garden State Parkway yesterday.
Summonses to answer simple assault charges in court were issued to both for the brawl that broke out around 10:20 a.m. at milepost 166.6 the NJSP said.
One was arrested by responding troopers, while the other was later picked up at his home, police said.
It wasn’t immediately clear what prompted the fight or whether the men knew each other.
Several 911 callers told local and State Police that both drivers were fighting in the middle of the road after one stopped his vehicle on the highway and the other pulled onto the shoulder.
A group of road maintenance workers also witnessed the incident.
Paramus and Washington Township police responded along with NJSP troopers.
