Two Toledo men were arrested early Sunday morning after shots were fired at Waffle House on East Wooster Street.
Bowling Green Police Chief Brad Conner said the incident started with an altercation in the downtown area as the bars were closing. Lt. Brad Biller indicated this morning there were no signs the incident was gang- or drug-related.
Shortly before 3 a.m. Sunday, two groups involved in the downtown incident subsequently encountered each other at Waffle House, 1548 E. Wooster St.
During the encounter, one man went out to his vehicle and returned with a handgun. He allegedly fired multiple shots in the restaurant at a single, but no one was struck. The number of shots fired was not available this morning.
"There was one person who we've identified as a victim," said Biller.
It was not clear this morning how many individuals may have been with the person who was shot at. Biller said there were at least 10 people in the vicinity of the incident, but an accurate accounting of patrons and staff inside the restaurant at the time was not available.
After the shots were fired, the alleged shooter and a group of others jumped into a car and backed out, hitting at least one vehicle. 
Bowling Green police pulled the vehicle over on Interstate 75 near the 184 mile marker, north of the city.
Latwaun Griffin, 23, Toledo, was arrested for felonious assault. Adam Borchardt, 24, Toledo, was arrested for driving under the influence and improper backing. Both were reportedly taken into custody without incident. Three others were also in the car but were not taken into custody.
Griffin remained held in the Wood County jail this morning on no bond. He was scheduled to have a court appearance today. Borchardt was not listed at the jail. No firearm was found in the vehicle; however, police found a handgun on the ramp near I-75 on East Wooster. The handgun was taken for testing on Sunday. The type of the gun could not be released this morning due to the pending nature of the investigation, police said.
Waffle House has turned over video to the police, and additional charges may be pending.
