Staff Report

Two men placed in custody Thursday evening at Smith's Marketplace parking lot were questioned and released, according to Los Alamos Police Cmdr. Preston Ballew.

No police report will be filed on the incident because no crimes were committed during the incident.

Police units responded to reports of a brawl involving more than a dozen young men who scattered on foot and in vehicles when police arrived. No one was hurt during the incident but several Smith's patrons expressed shock and fear in watching the incident unfold.
