IRON MOUNTAIN – A Florence, Wis. man has been arrested and scheduled for a court date following an assault outside of the Iron Mountain (Kmart) Plaza earlier this week.

The incident occurred at about 8:25 p.m. on Tuesday.

Officers from the Iron Mountain Police Department said that a 38-year-old Florence man attacked a 22-year-old Norway man in the plaza parking lot after a road rage incident that occurred on U.S. 2 near the entrance to the plaza.

The Florence man was arrested on suspicion of assault and battery and later released on a $1,000 cash bond, said officers.

He is scheduled to be arraigned in Dickinson County District Court on Aug. 8.

Officers added that the Norway man was treated at Dickinson County Hospital for non life-threatening injuries.
