Two tasered in Brac bar fight

Police say that the officers, who were on police patrol, went to La Esperanza bar, Watering Place, after a report of afight at 12:01am on 25 January. A large crowd had gathered around two men who were in heated argument, police said. The officers intervened but two other men who tried to stop them were tasered. Three men between the ages of 25 and 39 were arrested for several criminal offences, ranging from assault, ABH, resisting arrest and interfering with a police officer in the execution of his duties. Unofficial sources say that there were several fights in progress and the situation was getting out of control.

One man was taken to the Faith Hospital on Cayman Brac for medical treatment for non-life threatening injuries he sustained allegedly as a result of being assaulted by one of the men, police stated. Unofficial sources told CNS that his arm was severely broken and he later flew to Grand Cayman on a regular flight for further treatment.

It is also undersood that another man was stabbed three times during the fight, to his hand, his arm and his body, but the wounds are not life threatening.

Cayman Brac police are urging people who may have information relative to this incident to call the Brac police station at 948-0331 or Crime Stoppers at 800(TIPS) 8477.

    Not quite understanding the math here…2 males are in a physical fight with each other. 2 additional men tried to intervene when police were getting a handle on the situation.

    2 + 2 = 4

    "Three men between the ages of 25 and 39 were arrested for several criminal offences, ranging from assault, ABH, resisting arrest and interfering with a police officer in the execution of his duties."

    But wait…THREE? Any idea what happened to the 4th person?

      Instead of "bar fight", think "melee" or "riot" or "chaos".

       

      Taking accurate notes is hard when fists are flying. Cut the officers some slack.

    Why was the man who did the stabbing not arrested?

    Sad thing is that most of these men (and members of the crowd) have young impressionable children who will grow up to believe that this is normal, acceptable behavior.

      You are so wrong. Very few people living in the Brac ever behave this way.

      There is fighting, robbing and killing all over the world, does that mean there is nothing else to do? Try find something constructive to do!

        I'm sorry you think that's a good thing.     I was born here too, but far from feral.    It's the main reason I don't frequent the bar scene on the Brac — there is almost always some wingnut or two willing and able to step up to the plate and disgrace themselves.    I take my little bit of drink at home, where I don't have to wonder if a fracas is going to break out.  

        This kind of nonsense is by no means exclusive to La Esperanza.   It happens almost every day.
