10 a.m.: An onlooker in the area of Eighth Street and Mankato Avenue reported seeing an accident. The drivers got out of their vehicles and argued, the complainant stated, and ended up chasing each other east on Eighth. Responding officers were unable to find any suspicious activity in the area and received no further reports pertaining to that incident.
