Associated Press

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Bismarck police say a slur about someone's mother led to a fight Sunday involving people wielding baseball bats and golf clubs.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that a 22-year-old Bismarck man was arrested but has not been charged. Burleigh County State's Attorney Lloyd Suhr says he is waiting on additional reports.

A 17-year-old boy was cited with minor in consumption and possession of drug paraphernalia in connection with the fight.

Bismarck Police Sgt. Gary Malo says several people were injured in the fight. He says one person was taken to a hospital with a head injury, and another received stitches and was treated and released.

Police say suspects in the case ranged in age from 14 to 33, and all were males.
