Police make assault arrest outside of Sharkeez

Newport Beach police Friday arrested a Colton resident who they say tried to attack another man with a bottle during a bar fight.

The fight started when Yanotan Casas, 22, was arguing with the man inside Baja Sharkeez on the Balboa Peninsula about 1:30 a.m., according police

The altercation spilled out into a parking lot, where Casas ended up on the ground, Lt. Evan Sailor said.

"While he's on the ground, he sees a bottle, grabs the bottle and tries to hit the victim," Sailor said.

The bottle missed and nobody was injured, Sailor added.

Newport Beach police officers arrested Casas on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

He was transported Friday afternoon to Orange County Jail, where his bail was to be set.
