ST. GEORGE – Police responded to a report of a fight at the Bout Time Pub & Grub on Sunset Boulevard in St. George Thursday night after two men allegedly traded heated words and flying fists.
At about 10 p.m., St. George Police officers were dispatched to a report of an assault outside the sports bar. (See ed. note)
“Two male acquaintances got into a verbal fight, and punches were thrown,” St. George Police Sgt. Dave Williams said.
During the fight, one of the men was either pushed or punched and ended up hitting his head on a table or other piece of furniture and cut his head. The individual began bleeding, though the injury wasn’t as serious as it appeared to be, Williams said.
The two men were “mutual combatants,” Williams said, as both parties were being aggressive during the incident. As a result, both were cited by police for disorderly conduct. Neither party wanted to press charges against the other for assault.
Patrons in the pub said the man with the bleeding head received medical treatment at the scene; however, no one was taken to the hospital via ambulance, Williams said.
St. George Police and St. George Fire responded to the scene.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by law enforcement or other emergency responders and may not contain the full scope of findings.
Ed. note: Clarification made that the fight took place outside Bout Time.
