A police officer was injured after a driver crashed a Mercedes into two cars while speeding away from the scene of a city centre brawl.
Police were called to Newton Street in the Northern Quarter at around 2.30am on Sunday, a GMP spokesman said.
One person was arrested on suspicion of theft.
Another suspect drove off from the scene in a Mercedes, before crashing into an Audi and Seat car. The driver then sped away without stopping.
A GMP spokesman described the officer's injuries as 'minor'.
Newton Street was cordoned off for several hours following the incident.
Specialist officers were seen combing the area for evidence until 4.30am.
A GMP spokesman said: "We were called to reports of an incident on Newton Street at about 2.30am.
"It looks like there was a male fighting other people. Someone has driven off from the scene and collided with two vehicles.
"An officer suffered minor injuries. The reason why there was a cordon was due to the damaged cars.
"The driver left the scene."
