Deputies break up Wisconsin bar brawl


EVANSVILLE, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities have broken up a bar brawl in southern Wisconsin that included alleged motorcycle club members and bar patrons.

The Rock County sheriff's office says deputies were dispatched early Saturday to the Union Tavern in Evansville for a large fight in progress. Authorities say one of the motorcycle club members signaled another club member into the bar. The second member began displaying a Taser-like electronic device.

A bar patron armed himself with a pool stick and, after two other patrons said they were shocked with the Taser, he struck the second club member in the head with the pool stick.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel  reports deputies arrested the two motorcycle club members. The bar patron wielding the pool stick also was arrested.

Criminal charges are pending.
