Investigators said the stabbing of at least three people in a parking lot at the Denver Broncos’ stadium after Thursday night’s game stemmed from a fight over a near fender-bender.
Police spokesman Steve Warneke said officers were called to a ‘‘very chaotic’’ scene just before 10 p.m. (Mountain Time) and found three people suffering from non-life-threatening stab wounds. A fourth may have been stabbed, but that person left the area by the time officers arrived.
Justin Lee Manzanares, 29, is being held for investigation of assault charges, Warneke said. Two others were taken into custody but were released pending further investigation.
‘‘It doesn’t appear that this was related to the outcome of the game. It doesn’t appear that this was Broncos versus Chargers,’’ Warneke said.
Denver lost to San Diego, 27-20. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
