Police say two roommates were treated for cuts and bruises after getting into a fight over cellphones early Friday.

Officers said Jiaro Mendez and Elias Acevedo were "highly intoxicated" and had been arguing over which cellphone, Android or Apple, was better.

The fight took place just before 1 a.m. outside the Evergreen Apartments in the 8400 block of East 25th Place. Mendez told police Acevedo stole his vehicle. Officers found the vehicle and Acevedo nearby.

Police said the pair had been drinking in the parking lot and began using beer bottles to hit and stab at each other. EMSA took both to the hospital to be treated for what police said were non-life threatening injuries.

Officers said initially they had a hard time determining what had happened because Mendez and Acevedo spoke very little English. They said a third man was also reported drinking with the pair, but he was gone by the time police arrived.

Police said Jiaro Mendez and Elias Acevedo were released from the hospital and officers arrested Acevedo, booking him into the Tulsa County jail on a complaint of assault with a deadly weapon.
