By Kyle Feldscher

Ypsilanti police broke up a large fight directly across the street from the police station Sunday morning and arrested at least one man after he tried to flee.

Officers noticed the fight starting at 1:05 Sunday morning in the 500 block of Congress Street. Soon, police were breaking up the fracas.

Police said one man ran away as they were breaking up the fight, but he was apprehended a few blocks away.

It’s unknown whether any of the combatants suffered injuries or whether anyone else was arrested in connection with the fight.

Wow, add some football coaches and bleachers and Ypsi could be mistaken for Ann Arbor.

This story's short on details, but I'm going to guess that this didn't involve JRR Tolkien versus CS Lewis.

Isn't this the second such fight in a similar location within the last couple of weeks? What gives?
