Beaverton Bar Fight Lands Seven in JailSalem-News.com
The fight started when a man's wife who was singing karaoke, was insulted and slapped on the rear by another patron.
(BEAVERTON, Ore.) - Deputies in Washington County were called to the Azteca Restaurant in Beaverton early this morning on a fight involving patrons and security.
Seven people were arrested and two were taken to area hospitals, according to Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. David Thompson.
He says that the report came in at 2:19 a.m. about a large group of people fighting at the Azteca restaurant on SW Beaverton Hillsdale Highway.
"Sheriff's Deputies were first to arrive on scene and found that the fight was continuing inside the bar," Thompson said.
"Upwards of 100 people were attempting to exit the bar and security had used pepper spray on the people who were fighting. Seven Sheriff's deputies and five Beaverton police were quickly able to get the fight broken up and under control."
Thompson says deputies investigated the incident and determined that the fight started when a woman who was singing karaoke was insulted and then slapped on her buttocks by another patron.
"The woman's husband took issue with the unwanted contact and confronted the man, 29-year old Yemby Gomez from Beaverton, who slapped her."
A fight then broke out Thompson said, involving many of the patrons.
"Beer bottles and chairs were being thrown and used as weapons. Security at the bar was trying to break up the fight and used pepper spray on some of the patrons."
After the investigation was completed, deputies were able to identify seven people who were involved in the fight.
Five were arrested and taken to the Washington County Jail on charges of Riot and second-degree Disorderly Conduct.
They were 21-year old Alexis Moreno-Bello of Tualatin, 22-year old Miguel Hernandez-Vasquez of Lake Oswego, 22-year old Javier Abarca-Hernandez of Tigard, 21-year old Wilson Zambrano-Rivas of Beaverton, and 20-year old Juan Zambrano-Rivas of Beaverton.
Two others were taken to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries. One of them was Yemby Gomez, who was cited for Riot, second-degree Disorderly Conduct, and Harassment. The other was 25-year old Isau Vasquez-Perez, of Beaverton, who was cited for Riot and second-degree Disorderly Conduct.
Thompson says the Oregon Liquor Control Commission is investigating Azteca for serving underage patrons.
