On the scene of the arrest, Chief Dan Shaffery told redbankgreen that police were still sorting out what happened, but that police had received reports of a fight near the Church Street exit of the A&P supermarket at around 10:45 a.m.
Shortly thereafter came a report of a hit-and-run accident near the post office, which is at that location.
Police stopped a suspect driving a gold Chevy PT Cruiser less than a mile away, at Riverside Drive and Rumson Road in Rumson, and took the driver into custody.
Shaffery did not identify the man, who had a visible cut beneath his left eye.
