Barton was later filmed for being prevented from leaving the parking lot by a club officer and a South Yorkshire police officer.
Barton was questioned by the police and it is understood that they will talk to Barton again this week as part of a voluntary interview.
In a statement, Barnsley said: “The club can confirm that there was an alleged incident in the tunnel area that took place after today’s game, which is currently being investigated by South Yorkshire police. The club helps the police with their questions. “
Barton, whose career as a player and now as a manager has been destroyed by controversy, seemed to have ignited the bad feeling by leaving his technical room to fight Stendel towards the end of the League One match.
The managers had a full-time heated exchange that extended to the tunnel area
Sources told The Mail on Sunday that there was a bad feeling between the couple during the game. At one point, a member of Fleetwood’s coaching team stepped between the couple because it seemed like everything was boiling over, while a yellow card was shown to a Barton employee.
With the last whistle, further words were exchanged between the managers before Stendel entered the tunnel, followed by Barton. It was then that the former Manchester City midfielder attacked the German, who needed medical help.
Barnsley striker Cauley Woodrow, who scored in his side, immediately tweeted: “First, @ftfc to have a manager who can physically attack another manager in the tunnel is disgusting, causing our manager to get blood out of his face flows !!
“People like you don’t deserve a place in the football game – you’re wrong. Second, fantastic victory today @BarnsleyFC. “
It is believed that Stendel, 45, lost teeth during the collision. Both clubs canceled their media conferences after the game.
Ski cameras then captured the incredible moment when Barton tried to leave the Oakwell parking lot with Steve Curwood, CEO of Fleetwood, only for a police officer and a guard to stop their car as it rushed to the exit.

It is understood that Barnsley had locked the gates of the parking lot in an attempt to prevent Barton from escaping.
Fleetwood declined to comment on the allegation of attack on Stendel on Saturday night.
