San Diego police scuffle with unruly men outside Barrio Logan bar

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A police sergeant was assaulted overnight in Barrio Logan, after being called to a bar to assist with an intoxicated patron.

A bouncer at the Cabo Wabo Grill on 30th Street and Main Street flagged down police just before 2:00 a.m. after an extremely intoxicated customer began swinging at another security person at the bar.

Then, the melee spilled out into the street:

"We flagged him down because the guy just basically started getting physical. Once he started getting physical, I had to grab him down to the floor,” said the bouncer. “The police officer took over, identified himself, the guy literally went straight head-butt, just charged at the officer.”

The security guard said the unidentified suspect reached for the sergeant's gun during the scuffle.

The suspect was detained and taken to a nearby hospital.
A second man with a bloody hand and clothes walked up to the scene also became combative with police.
He too was arrested.
The sergeant involved in the scuffle with the first man suffered a cut on his lip and some scratches.
