Crime Brief

Fight at gym

A fight broke out at the 24 Hour Fitness on Showers Drive on the morning of April 12, stemming from an argument over whether one man was exercising too close to a fellow gym-goer, according to a police report.

The two men involved in the fight — a 41-year-old Palo Altan and a 54-year-old from San Jose — got into a scuffle around 9:30 a.m. after the 54-year-old accused the younger man of crowding his personal space, according to Sgt. Sean Thompson, public information officer with the Mountain View Police Department.

Someone in the gym, located at 555 Showers Dr., called the police, and a responding officer interviewed the two men, Thompson said. Each blamed the other for throwing the first punch and both declined prosecution.

"They apologized to one another and moved on with life," Thompson said.
