A verbal confrontation between two men in the 1200 block of N. Ponderosa Circle turned into a knife fight Wednesday Aug. 31. Gun shots were fired in an effort to stop the brawl.
"Another person in the house had gone to get a gun and discharged a couple of rounds into the air to stop the fight," said Commander Don Engler of the Payson Police Department.
Dan Anderson Pruett, 35, was arrested for aggravated assault-domestic violence. April Matthews, 25, was arrested for disorderly conduct with a weapon for discharging the gun.
The victim, Jeffrey Lidster, 21, sustained lacerations to his face and hands, Engler said. Lidster is possibly facing charges as well, the commander said.
