NATIONAL CITY, Calif. — Police arrested three men after an afternoon bar fight escalated outside of Stoney’s Bar & Grill in National City, Police Sgt. Omar Ramirez told FOX 5.
Around 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, a bartender reported a fight between two groups of men outside the bar. One man had reached into his trunk during the altercation, making the bartender fear they had a weapon, according to Sgt. Ramirez.
Three of the men drove off together before police could arrive, but a San Diego Police Department helicopter was in the area on an unrelated call and spotted the car a short time later on Marina Way.
Officers stopped the men, put them in handcuffs and searched the car for weapons. None were found.
The three men were arrested on alcohol-related charges and the driver of the car was charged with DUI.
