Police seized a machete and a gun in what officers say was a dispute over erratic driving in a Salt Lake neighborhood.

An 18-year-old man was slightly injured during the Wednesday night fight, officers said.A Salt Lake man, 39, followed a driver after yelling at him to slow down, witnesses told police. The driver stopped at 1643 W. Seventh North. The resident armed himself with the machete and the driver pulled a 9mm pistol from his car, a police report said.

The resident took the gun away from the teen and returned to his pickup truck, followed by the youth. As the young man reached into the truck for the keys, the resident slashed him on his arm.

Police questioned and released the combatants and confiscated the weapons.
