NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – Two people were arrested after fighting outside Newport News Police headquarters on Tuesday.

An officer was leaving the building just before noon when she noticed four people who were yelling at each other and then began physically fighting outside the building.

The officer walked up to the group and broke up the fight.

Although the people initially complied with the officer, one of the offenders, 25-year-old Deontre Damone Blount, pushed the officer aside and began fighting with one of the other people again.
