BELLEVUE, Neb. (AP) Two Bellevue police officers sent to keep the peace have been treated for minor injuries after a fracas erupted over the towing of a vehicle.

The incident occurred outside an apartment building around 9:30 a.m. Sunday. The two officers were dispatched to calm a dispute between the tow truck driver and the vehicle owner and relatives. Bellevue police Lt. Kurt Stroeher says the fracas began when officers tried to arrest someone who’d been blocking the tow truck. Stroeher says two of the people arrested kicked out windows in the police cruisers, and one of the officers was cut by the broken glass as he wrestled with one of the people.

Police say a total of four people eventually were arrested and will face a variety of charges.
