BISMARCK, ND - A fight has closed down the 1200 block of E. Bismarck Expressway for several hours Saturday afternoon.

A shift commander with the Bismarck Police Department says two men started fighting in the roadway just after 11:30.

He says a person driving by saw one of the men, a 44 year old, pull out a knife the other man, a 36 year old. The driver then stopped and used his concealed weapon to break up the fight.

When police arrived, the commander says the police got the driver to lower his weapon.

After seeing the the younger man had cuts on his face, police took the older man to the Burleigh County Jail.

Bismarck Expressway remains closed as police continue investigating.
