Police say both men were transported to Alamance Regional Medical Center. Police say Gwynn was treated for cuts to his head and also swelling to his left cheek. Lipscomb had an injury to his nose.

Police arrested Lipscomb for Assault with a Deadly Weapon and placed him in the Alamance County Jail on a $75,000 bond.
