---- — Downtown surveillance cameras caught a fight in progress in the municipal parking garage late Saturday night, said city police, who as a result arrested an Oneonta man.

Daniel Baxter, 23, was charged with public fighting under the Oneonta municipal code and he was held until sober, police said. 

The fight happened in the middle level of the parking garage at about 11:45 p.m. Saturday, police said, and developed after two men “had words” while at a nearby bar.

The other man, 28, of Otego, wasn’t hurt and wasn’t charged because he had been defending himself, police said.
