SAN DIEGO — A man smashed a beer bottle into another man’s face for dancing with his girlfriend early Wednesday morning at a Gaslamp-area nightclub, police said.

The assault occurred about 1:20 a.m. inside the Onyx Room at 852 Fifth Avenue in downtown San Diego, according to San Diego police Sgt. Jordan Wells.
