AA pair of brothers were arrested by police early Thursday morning and charged with throwing billiard balls and stools at people in the Alibi Bar on West El Camino Real.
According to Mountain View police spokeswoman Liz Wylie, the melee began around 1:15 a.m. on June 2, when two men began arguing over the use of the bar's pool table.
A bartender attempted to intervene, but the men swore at the bartender, Wylie said. The bartender then told the men to leave the bar. Instead, they began throwing pool balls and bar stools. One bar patron was hit with a stool, causing a 3-inch laceration on his head, and another was hit with a pool ball, which he blocked with his arm before it could hit his head, Wylie said.
The men fled, but based on the bartender's descriptions of them, the suspects were found in an alley behind the bar shortly after officers arrived. Officers arrested Bisrat Abebe, 33, and Yonathan Abebe, 28, and charged them with assault with a deadly weapon. Both men are from Mountain View.
Paramedics treated the man with the cut on his head at the bar, but both victims declined to be taken to the hospital.
