Who would Jesus arrest? Well, Salt Lake City police arrested the combatant left conscious Tuesday in a fight over religion.

About 3 p.m. Tuesday, two men near 800 East and 900 South in Salt Lake City got into a discussion over whether Jesus was a Mormon or a Catholic. The discussion led to blows, police said, and when officers arrived, one man was unconscious and the other was sitting on a sidewalk. The man still conscious was intoxicated, police said, and arrested on suspicion of assault and public intoxication.
