Crime brief: brawl at bar

Police arrested a man last Friday after he allegedly threw his bike lock at someone's head and punched two patrons at the O'Malley's Sports Pub on Old Middlefield Road.

Brian Fabris, a 31-year-old Mountain View man, was kicked out of the bar and was not allowed back in. At around 12:01 a.m., Fabris allegedly threw his U-shaped bike lock at the victim, a 35-year-old Santa Clara man, missing his head by less than six inches, according to Sgt. Saul Jaeger of the Mountain View Police department. Fabris also reportedly punched the man in the face, and punched a 29-year-old Mountain View man in the face as well.

Fabris was arrested and booked into San Jose Main Jail on charges of assault with a deadly weapon and battery.

WEEEHOOO! Just another night of drinkin' and a-fightin'.

Just add alcohol: the "Has been" of social intoxicants, apparently still in fashion with the less-desirables.

I guess we can't pin this one of rabble-rousers from out of town. At least he wasn't driving (my assumption as his weapon of choice was a bike lock).

Ah the good old days when a bar fight was just a bar fight. No knives, guns or bicycle locks.

Time for everyone to stop drinking alcohol. This intoxicant can be lethal and at the least cause people to do terrible things they'll later regret. Think before you drink.

Actually, kathy you are right and funny!!
I agree with probably 74...
There is nothing wrong with drinking and having a good
Time but when a bartender can't or won't decide on when to cut someone off, that is a problem.
This is when things get out of control.

A real good bartender will know when to cut someone
Off or tell them it's time to leave..
