Deputies got a report around midnight of a man causing a disturbance at the Jack London Saloon. Deputies were advised that the man had tried to assault a bartender. The bartender later told deputies that the man and a female companion came int the bar and were arguing with each other. The two went into the Mens bathroom together and continued yelling at each other. The bartender asked them to leave, which then prompted the man to start arguing with the bartender, being encouraged by the female. Another bar patron tried to help the bartender, and the female companion then took a swing at that person, but missed. The man and woman were able to be hustled outside, and the bartender locked the front door. The two started pounding on the door and one of them picked up a rock and threw it at the door. About that time a deputy drove up and saw the two suspects outside and screaming. The male suspect saw the deputy and started to walk away. The deputy told him to stop but he ignored the deputy. A second unit arrived and the male subject started running, but a deputy stopped him and took him into custody. Both the man and woman were arrested for public intoxication.
