A person was stabbed on H Street NE after an argument at a sports bar.
Two people started arguing at Half Time Sports Bar at 1427 H Street NE around 2 a.m. Saturday morning, according to police.
After the two people were kicked out of the bar, one person was stabbed by a person who police believe is a friend of the other person who was escorted from the bar.
There was also a stabbing over the weekend near the intersection of M Street SE and South Capitol Street. According to police, a panhandler cut another panhandler in the nose during an argument at 7:50 p.m. Saturday night.
Two police officers and at least three other people were hospitalized early Saturday morning after a collision between a police cruiser, a taxi and an SUV at the intersection of H and 8th streets NE. The crash sent the police car into a store window and the taxi hit a light pole, WUSA 9 reported.
Police are looking into whether the collision began with a police chase and the driver of the taxi was arrested, WJLA reported.

Car Crashes on H Street NE After Chase by U.S. Marshals, Police Say — A man was arrested yesterday after he crashed a car that U.S. marshals were chasing on H Street NE, according to authorities. [Hill Now]
A man was arrested today after he crashed a car that U.S. marshals were chasing on H Street NE, according to authorities.
The crash happened at 8th and H streets NE, the D.C. Fire and EMS Department tweeted about 11:30 a.m. One person was hospitalized with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries, a D.C. Fire and EMS spokesman said.
It wasn’t immediately clear if the person injured was the driver of the car. Authorities also haven’t identified the man who was apprehended.
Members of the U.S. Marshals Service Capital Area Regional Fugitive Force tried to serve the man a warrant before he jumped in a car and drove away, a U.S. Marshals spokesman said. The warrant was for failure to appear in D.C. Superior Court.
Eventually, the man ended up on H Street as U.S. marshals chased him, said Metropolitan Police Department Commander Jeff Brown of the First District. The pursuit didn’t involve MPD officers, Brown added.
At 8th and H streets, the man went through a red light and crashed, damaging three cars, the U.S. Marshals representative said. He then leaped out of his car and authorities apprehended him in a restaurant, which the spokesman didn’t identify.
H Street was closed temporarily as crews worked to clean up the scene. When a Hill Now reporter arrived, a tow truck was driving away with a silver car that had significant damage to its front end.
(Updated at 10:05 a.m.) At least two gunmen fired shots at D.C. police officers and EMS workers overnight near NoMa and in Hill East, police said.
The suspects shot at EMS workers near Union Market, just after midnight. A police chase tore across Capitol Hill before ending near the Potomac Gardens public housing complex in Hill East. The suspects fired at police again there.
The gunfight began when the EMS captain saw people shooting at each other from their cars at 4th and Morse streets NE, police said. The captain and another EMS worker chased after one of the cars.
During the pursuit, the suspects shot at the EMS personnel near 4th and K streets NE. The shooters then tore across Capitol Hill as they were pursued by officers from the Metropolitan Police Department and the U.S. Park Police.
The chase ended at 13th and I streets SE, police said. The suspects shot at police there and ran away on foot.
Police deployed a K-9 unit to help locate the gunmen. But they haven’t been found, and no arrests have been made.
One local said she heard about seven shots near NoMa about midnight, followed by police activity all night.
No one was injured.

An accused robber led police on a 20-mile car chase last night (Thursday) after officers tried to stop him two blocks from Union Station, The Washington Post reported.
The driver of a black Jeep and three passengers were arrested in College Park and questioned in connection to several robberies in D.C.
The chase began after someone was robbed about 9:45 p.m. on the 300 block of E Street NE. Minutes later, officers spotted a Jeep on the 900 block of E Street NE that matched the description the robbery victim gave, the Post reported.
Officers tried to stop the Jeep, but its driver side-swiped a patrol car and sped off. Police from the District, U.S. Park Police and Prince George’s County Police gave chase and forced the vehicle to stop on Kenilworth Avenue near Radcliff Drive, the Post reported. Charges against the four men were pending.
Police declined to immediately speak about the incident.
