    The Dutch police arrested a total of seven people, including five Belgians, on Saturday in a city in the southern part of the Netherlands, after a fight escalated into a high-speed car chase.

    What began as a fight turned into a car chase between two vehicles, one Belgian and one Dutch, through the streets of the city of Breda on Saturday afternoon. The two vehicles involved ended up crashing into each other around Stationsplein.

    One of the occupants rushed from his vehicle and made for a nearby hotel, but he was attacked by a 20-year-old Belgian wielding a bat. The Belgian reportedly also had a firearm in his possession, explains Nieuwsblad.

    The 20-year-old Belgian was handcuffed and handed over to the police, who also arrested two Dutchmen.

    Later, four Belgians, aged between 20 and 22, came forward and confessed to the police that they were also involved in the incident in the city of Breda and were also arrested.

    The reason for the fight is not clear.
