A fight drew a large police response to the City of Lambertville Thursday night.

One man was transported to a local hospital for evaluation of his injuries.

The call resulted in five summonses being issued for violating the city’s ordinance on maintaining peace and good order.

According to Officer-In-Charge Lt. Robert Brown, officers were called to the area behind the Lambertville Station Inn at approximately 9:32 p.m. Patrolman Bereheiko was the first to arrive and found a large group of adults exiting the tow path. The group was fighting.

The situation required additional support, and Corporal Wurpel, along with officers from West Amwell Police Department, Delaware Township Police Department, and Raritan Township Police Department, arrived soon after to assist in separating the parties.

An investigation at the scene revealed that the individuals involved were highly intoxicated and all knew each other, police said.

The confrontation reportedly began on the Wing Dam but was interrupted by a sudden rainstorm, which caused the group to disperse. The altercation resumed with pushing and shoving as the group exited the tow path, police said.

All parties involved denied filing charges against one another.
