Five people were arrested Sunday night after a brawl ensued at Redfish Pool Bar at Nick's Kitchen & Beach Bar. 

At about 8:15 p.m., a one-on-one altercation at the restaurant, 3828 Seawall Blvd., turned into a larger confrontation that sent one person to the hospital with minor injuries, police department spokesman Sgt. Xavier Hancock said. 

An officer who was working an extra security job at the bar happened to be near the altercation when it began, Hancock said.

“Two men were just getting into a tussle,” Hancock said.

As he was separating the initial combatants, someone else was struck in the back of the head, Hancock said. After this person was transported to the hospital, additional people began to fight but were quickly separated, Hancock said.

The five people were then arrested, he said.

All arrests were misdemeanors, Hancock said.

Testosterone and alcohol combined is often a recipe for ignorance.
