Rochester police said the fight occurred about 2 a.m. on Sunday, and was observed by an officer on patrol in the 200 block of Main Street who witnessed three males hitting each other. The officer ordered the men to stop fighting, but they ignored the officer's commands.

Another instigator was also issued a misdemeanor citation for disorderly conduct.
