Officer injured while stopping Black Friday brawl

Posted: Updated:

RIALTO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a police officer suffered a broken wrist as he broke up a brawl between two men waiting in line for Black Friday shopping deals at a Southern California Walmart store.

The San Bernardino Sun says (http://bit.ly/1fO2E5C ) the fight occurred about 7 p.m. Thanksgiving night when store managers decided to open the doors early to accommodate more than 3,000 waiting people. The doors were originally scheduled to open at 8 p.m.

Police say there were three fights total at the store, two of which were inside over merchandise and the third outside that injured the officer.

One of the men involved in the fight outside was arrested for suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. Police say he was allegedly kicking the other man in the head when he was down on the ground.
