GIBSON COUNTY — A New Jersey man was arrested Saturday after Gibson County Central Dispatch received a report of a fight at the Pilot Travel Center located at 1042 E. Warrenton Road near Haubstadt.

Officers from the Gibson County Sheriff’s Office, Fort Branch Police Department, and Haubstadt Police Department were dispatched and once on scene, separated all parties involved in the incident.

Kang was booked into the Gibson County Jail on charges of battery, public intoxication, resisting law enforcement, and battery on a law enforcement officer.
