SAN LUIS OBISPO — St. Patrick’s Day is often known for people getting together to celebrate and consume large amounts of alcohol. This can lead to volatile situations.
Such was the case at a bar in the 700 block of Higuera on Sunday. Three patrons got into an argument with the bar staff and officers were called in to restore order.
At first, one man was arrested for being drunk in public. Then, things escalated as two other men began to fight with the officers. During their resisting, one officer was knocked unconscious as handcuffs were applied to the two men.
David Delgado Jasso was arrested and charged with assault on a police officer and being drunk in public.
Jesus Jasso was arrested and charged with resisting a police officer, violation of probation, possession of a controlled substance, and being drunk in public.
The unnamed third man, the first one arrested, cooperated with police and was only charged with being drunk in public.
