RICHFIELD, Minn. — One man is in custody on assault charges following a road rage incident Tuesday night in Richfield that ended with the occupants of two vehicles throwing landscape bricks and rocks at each other. 

Police told KARE 11 that Richfield squads and the Minnesota State Patrol responded to a ramp off Highway 62 at Portland Ave. just before 6:15 p.m. Officers learned that a dispute between people in two vehicles apparently started on I-35W and led to the off-ramp in Richfield, where the drivers pulled over and those involved in the road rage began throwing landscape bricks and rocks at each other's vehicles. 

Investigators located all three people involved, and one of the suspects was transported to the Hennepin County Jail on possible assault charges. 

The incident remains under investigation by both Richfield police and the state patrol.
