    ORLANDO, Fla. - Police have arrested one of the men accused of attacking another man with a skateboard in downtown Orlando.

    Blayne Patterson, 23, was arrested in New Hampshire for aggravated battery in connection with the incident. 

    Officials said the attack started after two people bumped into each other outside a parking garage near Magnolia Avenue and Pine Street. Police said two others jumped into the fight and struck the victim with their skateboard more than 10 times. 

    Police released video of the brawl in August, hoping someone knew the skateboard wielders.

    Officials arrested Patterson in New Hampshire because he had moved there since the attack.

    Patterson has since posted bond.
