A fight over fishing in Fayette County ended in the arrests of two Mount Pleasant men.

Joseph Brosh, 41, was accused of assaulting a 55-year-old Mount Pleasant man Tuesday, state police said.

Mr. Brosh and a friend, Matthew Ahner, 30, parked on the man's property in Bullskin to go fishing, and when the man asked the friends to move their vehicle, Mr. Brosh assaulted him, leaving the man with a small cut on his face, state police said.

The man told officers that people often park on his property because it is close to a popular fishing spot.

Mr. Brosh is being charged with simple assault, harassment, and disorderly conduct. Mr. Ahner is charged only with disorderly conduct.
