A pedestrian was hit by a car during a wild melee on the South Coast that allegedly involved baseball bats, planks of wood, bottles and a machete.
Emergency services were called to Mustang Drive in Sanctuary Point about 4.15am Saturday following reports of a brawl.
Officers from South Coast Police District attended and arrested a 22-year-old local man.
He was taken to Nowra Police Station where he was charged with affray.
The man was given bail to appear at Nowra Local Court on March 29.
It is also alleged a driver of a Mitsubishi ute hit a person on the street during the fracas, causing minor injuries, and narrowly avoided hitting two other people.
Later on Saturday morning, a Mitsubishi ute was found on fire near the Hyams Beach turn-off from Naval College Road.
Fire crews were alerted to the blaze about 6am and arrived to find the car fully engulfed in flames.
An RFS spokesperson said the car was unoccupied and no one was injured in the blaze.
Two RFS crews worked quickly to contain the blaze but the car was completely destroyed.
The fire appeared to be deliberately lit and the matter has been referred to police.
It is not known at this stage if the two incidents were connected.
Inquiries into the incident are continuing and police are urging anyone with information to come forward or call Crime Stoppers on 1 800 333 000.
