DENVER (AP) - Investigators say the stabbing of at least three people in a parking lot at the Denver Broncos‘ stadium after Thursday night’s game stemmed from a fight over a near fender-bender.

Police spokesman Steve Warneke says officers were called to a “very chaotic” scene just before 10 p.m. and found three males suffering from non-life-threatening stab wounds. A fourth may have been stabbed, but that person had left.

Three people were taken into custody, and two were released pending further investigation. Warneke says 29-year-old Justin Lee Manzanares is being held for investigation of assault charges.

Police say he pulled a knife from a sheath he was wearing on his belt and cut or stabbed all three people. They say the fight started after he pulled out of a parking spot and nearly hit the victims’ vehicle.
