Belleville police laid multiple charges after two men engaged in a fist fight in the parking lot of a west end plaza on the afternoon of Thursday, June 20.

A June 21 media release states that calls started coming in to police dispatchers shortly before 3 p.m. Thursday reporting that two men, who had been arguing in a large parking lot at the intersection of Sidney and Bridge Streets, appeared to be headed towards a physical altercation.

Police state in the media release that “one of the involved males took off his shirt as the argument ensued, while the other was described as being in a motorized wheelchair.”

As officers were responding, a fight ensured and the male in a wheelchair sustained minor injuries, police say.

Police arrived and found one of the combatants – the male without a shirt – to be on five separate probation orders. Following an investigation, the 34-year-old male of no fixed address was arrested, was charged with assault, breach of probation and held for a bail hearing.
