Four people were arrested in Garrison, Benton County Iowa, Friday January 18, 2013 around 8:00 p.m.
The Benton Sheriff’s Office received several 911 calls of a possible fight involving 10-12 individuals at the south edge of Garrison.
As Deputies and Iowa State Troopers arrived on scene, it was reported that someone had taken a vehicle from 205 South Sycamore Street in Garrison. The vehicle was observed leaving the area and going down a nearby alley where it struck a telephone pedestal.
The driver was later identified as Cody Edward Hughes age 27 of Blairsville, Georgia. Hughes reportedly returned to the area and was confronted by several people at the residence. During the altercation between parties, a 23 year old female from the Garrison area was struck in with a multipurpose tool causing a minor injury to the neck area. A larger knife was than displayed by Hughes. Individuals at the scene reportedly wrestled Hughes to the ground when he came towards the crowd taking the knife from him.
