Shortly after 1 a.m. this past Saturday morning Sunnyside police officers responded to a fight at Egley's Sports bar in the 600 block of East Edison Avenue.
Upon arrival officers contacted about 50 people outside the bar in the street. Officers sorted through the people and came across subjects still arguing and yelling at each other.
While officers were in the area a female reported that she had just witnessed a male break out a window in her vehicle. Officers apprehended a man, 22-year-old Uriel Bernal of Sunnyside, and took him into custody. He was charged with assault in the fourth degree and malicious mischief in the third degree.
Upon investigation it was determined that the fight began in the bar and the bartender/manager, Madrigal Leopoldo, was cited for maintaining or permitting a public nuisance.
