Police say tailgating led to fight between two men

Police say a 29-year-old man from Lower Sackville has serious injuries after a case of road rage on the Hammonds Plains Road in Upper Tantallon Thursday afternoon.

RCMP say two drivers got into a fight in the Sobeys parking lot after tailgating on the road. 

Police say the man's injuries didn't seem severe at the scene, but they were upgraded to serious after he was taken to a hospital in Halifax.

Police say the drivers didn't know each other and no weapon was involved.

A 28-year-old Dartmouth man was arrested at the scene and he's since been released and will appear in court at a later date. RCMP say charges will be determined based on the seriousness of the man's injuries and after statements are gathered by witnesses.
