An overnight fight at a bar in Evansville ended with one man's arrest, according to the Evansville Police Department.

EPD says its officers were sent to Buck's Tavern on N. Fulton Avenue just before 1:00 a.m. on Monday for a fight in progress. According to dispatch, at least six men were fighting in the parking lot behind the bar.

When officers got there, they say they saw a man who was covered in blood hitting a black SUV near the bar. They say that 29-year-old Alexander Marshall was behind the wheel of the SUV with the vehicle running.

The man who was bleeding and Marshall were both placed into custody so officers could figure out what happened.

A witness told officers that they saw Marshall get into the SUV when the other man started to hit it. Police say that's when Marshall started to drive away and allegedly hit the other man with his car.

When officers tried to talk to the man who was injured, they say he was extremely uncooperative, so they couldn't determine whether he was hit by the SUV or just injured in the fight. He refused treatment and was let go.

As officers spoke with Marshall, they said that his eyes were glossy, his speech was slurred, and that he said he didn't know what had happened. They said they could also smell alcohol on his breath.

EPD says that Marshall showed signs of impairment during field sobriety tests, but that he refused to take a breathalyzer. 

Marshall was booked into the Vanderburgh County Jail on charges of DUI.

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some higher amounts to the south, we're waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper teens across the Tri-State. Thankfully, road crews did a fantastic job treating the roads to keep conditions from getting slick. However, the northerly winds gusting as high as 15 to 20 mph has dropped wind chill values into the single digits and even below zero in our western communities. There won't be much of an improvement in temperatures this afternoon. With the strong northerly wind flow and dry skies our highs will only reach the mid to upper 20s. Winds will stay quite breezy keeping the wind chill factor in place through the day.
