UPDATE: New Jersey State Police arrested two men — one from Woodcliff Lake — following a fistfight on the Garden State Parkway yesterday.
Summonses to answer simple assault charges in court were issued to 24-year-old Robert Pikovski and to Jose Morales, 49, of Bloomfield for the brawl that broke out around 10:20 a.m. at milepost 166.6.
Pikovski was arrested by responding troopers, and Morales — who left in his Ford F-150 pickup — was picked up at his home later, NJSP Sgt. Jeff Flynn said.
It still wasn’t 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, CLIFFVIEW PILOT reported yesterday.
Paramus and Washington Township police responded along with NJSP troopers.
A group of road maintenance workers witnessed the incident.
