If you're going to choose somewhere for a public scuffle in St Albans, outside the city's police station shouldn't be high up the list.
But that's what happened this afternoon, when two men became embroiled in a punch-up at around 3.15pm outside the Alban Arena, close to Herts police's hub in the Civic Centre.
Officers swarmed to intervene, with more than a dozen believed to have been in attendance.
One man was detained and police were seen carrying out a search of the area and interviewing staff from Virgin Money before dispersing.
A police spokesperson confirmed a man was restrained during the incident to help ensure the safety of officers at the scene and members of the public.
