Man arrested after Modesto bar fight

Modesto police arrested a man in a bar fight Sunday night after they say he knocked a bartender unconscious and injured two women.

Police responded to a call at 10:45 p.m. at The Other Place, 2003 Yosemite Blvd., said Sgt. Brian Findlen. Police say the bartender complimented Aaron Aguilera, 29, of Modesto after he took a triple shot of tequila.

Aguilera, police say, became angry and kicked the bartender in the head. Two women who tried to stop the attack also were injured, police said. Police arrested Aguilera two miles away at his home on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, possession of methamphetamine and committing a crime while on bail, Findlen said.
