Man injured in fight outside downtown bar

A San Mateo man told police that he and a friend were jumped by a group of 10 or more men outside of a downtown Mountain View bar early Sunday morning.

The 27-year-old victim suffered a broken tooth, small cuts and bruises after the fight, but was not seriously injured, said Mountain View Police Department spokeswoman Shino Tanaka. His friend was not hurt.

According to the police report, the two men were leaving Molly Magee's at about 1:45 a.m. on Dec. 8, when they were "attacked by 10 to 15 unknown Asian males" outside the bar on the 200 block of Castro Street.

The man reported the incident the following afternoon, at about 1 p.m.

Tanaka said the victim had "no idea" what the fight was about and told police he suspected his assailants were "looking to start something."

There was no additional description of the attackers.

A man walks into a bar and orders a drink, but needs to go to the bathroom. To stop people from stealing his drink he puts a note on it that says, 'I spit in this beer.' When he returns he finds another note saying, 'So did I'

Thank you and don't forget to tip your waitress.

"A San Mateo told police"

That's the victims name? I am guessing A. is short for Antonio.

"10 to 15 unknown Asian males"

Probably not Monte Carlo, but that was my guess prior to reading the whole article.

Would be interesting to know how much is spent on MVPD services dealing with these situations.
