An investigation continues today following a fight in La Pine last night that reportedly involved about 20 people. Deschutes County Sheriff's officials say that two people were struck with a baseball bat during the fight, and both were taken by ground ambulance with non-life threatening injuries. Sgt. Dan Bilyeu says its unusual to respond to a fight this large: “We usually don't have altercations quite that size and my understanding is that when the initial patrols got on scene. 20 people may have been an inflated number by the caller, but there was a lot of yelling and screaming going on, so the caller may have been excited. But I think 20 is a little high." No one was arrested at this time, but the baseball bat was recovered and the investigation is continuing. The melee happened in front of a home on Lava Drive.
