2 Officers Injured in Bar Fight


Two police officers were injured while breaking up a large fight in the parking lot of a southern New Jersey bar.

Five people were arrested after Friday night's brawl in Burlington Township, though it's still not clear what sparked the fight that eventually involved several men and women.

Police found two men fighting when they arrived at the bar around 11:15 p.m. As officers tried to take one of the combatants into custody, several other people allegedly tried to interfere with the arrest.
