A fight between two men over a woman resulted in both being arrested and one man injured at a Mount Pleasant bar early Sunday morning.

Sabino Garcia, 23, of Racine, was arrested for disorderly conduct and Xavier Hernandez, 26, of Racine, was arrested for disorderly conduct and substantial battery.

According to a press release by the Mount Pleasant Police Department, officers patrolled the area near Racine and Mead Street because they receive a number of calls for service out of several area taverns. At 1:37 a.m. Sunday, officers received a call about a fight happening inside Los Cataritos Restaurant, 2405 Racine St.

Garcia didn’t like Hernandez dancing with a woman so Garcia punched Hernandez in the head. In retaliation, Hernandez took a beer bottle and smashed it over Garcia’s head. When police arrived, he was bleeding profusely and he was taken to Ascension-All Saints Hospital for treatment.

Both men were then taken to the Racine County Jail.
