WINONA, Minn. (AP) - Officials say a brawl between rival biker gangs in southeastern Minnesota prompted police to close a lane of U.S. Highway 61 after pulling over more than 100 bikers.

Winona County Chief Deputy Ron Ganrude tells the Winona Daily News that police were called Saturday afternoon to a parking lot in Minneiska where members of the Hells Angeles and Outlaws motorcycle clubs were fighting.

No was cited for fighting, however, because no one would talk to the officers. One man with facial injuries said he fell. Two men were cited for possessing brass knuckles.

Meanwhile, three deputies and a state trooper pulled over 100 members of the Outlaws on Highway 61 while police in Minneiska investigated the fight. The Outlaws were eventually let go.

Ganrude says he couldn't recall another biker brawl in the county.
