West Palm Beach, FL (March 7, 2019) – Police were called to the scene of a fight at 50th Street and North Flagler Drive to find that multiple people were engaged in an argument with one another that turned violent.

Upon arrival, they found three men, one of whom had a 6-inch long laceration on his neck. He was immediately taken to the hospital for treatment.

His two companions spoke with police and said that they had been fighting with three other people in a Cadillac when one of them “looked at them funny.” Both men were intoxicated at the scene of the incident.

Police then discovered that one of them had just gone to buy some cocaine from a drug dealer. The men said that an argument actually took place over drugs and one of the men cut their friend with a knife and got back into the car.

Officers arrested multiple parties for battery.
