Two people are charged, and one received a citation, following a brawl at a Downtown El Paso bar last week.

According to a news release, it happened at about 1:30 a.m. Friday at Fish Bar located at 200 S. Anthony.

Police say the fight began inside the bar and continued outside. Officers were attempting to separate those involved when they too were pushed and punched. 

According to police, Mohamed Michael Deen, 23, interfered with an officer’s attempt to restrain someone before allegedly hitting the officer in the face and kicking a person on the ground.

He then allegedly ran away as police tried to detain him, police say. He was later arrested with the help of other officers and a bar bouncer.

According to the release, Deen allegedly refused to surrender and was pepper sprayed to help calm him down.

Police say Brandon Bernard Hicks-Gray, 20, and Byrdsong Jevontez, 24, were also allegedly involved in the fight and refused to comply with officers.

Deen was charged with evading arrest, resisting arrest, and assault on a peace officer. He posted a $6,500 bond and was released from jail on Saturday, according to jail records.

Hicks was charged with disorderly conduct (fighting) and resisting arrest. He posted a $166 bond and was also released on Saturday, records show.

Jevontez received a disorderly conduct citation.

Police say the incident was captured on video but has since been removed from social media.
