The incident happened around 11 p.m., on the trail between Shirlington and Glebe Road.
A man was reported to have been stabbed in the thigh but only suffered “minor injuries,” according to police. He was transported to the trauma center at George Washington University Hospital, according to a fire department spokeswoman.
One person has been taken into custody in connection to the apparent stabbing, said Arlington County Police spokesman Ashley Savage.
The incident stemmed “from an argument between two subjects who appear to be highly intoxicated,” said Savage.
