MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Two men who were fighting over a bicycle Monday afternoon got into a duel of sorts, as described by MPD, in the middle of the street.

The two men were arguing over the ownership of a bicycle around 3:00 p.m. on the 500 block of State Street, according to an incident report.

A witness told MPD one man took out a small knife, then challenged the other to come get the bike. The other man unbuckled his belt and pulled it from his waist in response. Police noted he then started twirling it “helicopter-style”, attempting to defend himself from the man with the knife.

MPD continued saying they then arrived at the site of the duel and arrested the man with the knife for disorderly conduct while armed. They did not mention if they arrested the man with the belt.
