Rome po­lice break up fight out­side Brew­house

Po­lice broke up a fight early Sun­day morn­ing out­side the Brew­house Mu­sic & Grill down­town and cited sev­eral peo­ple for dis­or­derly con­duct.

Ac­cord­ing to Rome Po­lice Depart­ment re­ports:

Po­lice were called just af­ter 1:30 a.m. to as­sist an­other of­fi­cer out­side the venue at 325 Broad St. When they ar­rived there was a small crowd of men and women on the side­walk yelling and ar­gu­ing among them­selves while the first of­fi­cer was sub­du­ing a man who was fight­ing.

One man, cov­ered in fe­ces, was too drunk to make a co­her­ent state­ment. His wife said she was help­ing him and an in­tox­i­cated friend into their car when a group of men from the bar started ar­gu­ing. She tried to in­ter­vene and the fight got phys­i­cal, with her get­ting pushed to the ground and her hus­band at­tacked.

The three men said the cou­ple ini­ti­ated the fight with them af­ter one of them told the hus­band they should not drink and drive. One said he pushed the woman away when she wouldn’t stop ar­gu­ing and try­ing to at­tack them.

Wit­nesses, how­ever, said it was un­clear who started the fight and what it was about. The first of­fi­cer ar­rived in time to see the hus­band hit one of the men and then claim self-de­fense.

All of the peo­ple in­volved were in­tox­i­cated to var­i­ous de­grees, the re­port stated, and there was no cor­rob­o­rat­ing ev­i­dence or in­juries. It was un­clear from the re­port how many ci­ta­tions were is­sued.
