Brawl breaks out over a case of beer


July 27, 2004

OCEANSIDE – A fight broke out in Libby Lake Park yesterday when one group of men tried to take a case of beer from another, police said.

Officers arrived at the park on Calle Montecito in time to see three men running away and one more starting to leave in a pickup, said Oceanside police Sgt. Lee Steitz. One officer held the truck driver at gunpoint while another officer tackled fleeing men one after another, taking them into custody.

The 4 p.m. brawl started as a fistfight over the beer, but the would-be thieves then hit three victims on the head with bottles. One victim was taken to a hospital, another was treated by paramedics and the third went home, declining treatment, Steitz said.

Three of the four detained for questioning were to be booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and robbery. Steitz said it wasn't clear if the fourth man had taken part in the assault. sediata
