Two officers were seriously injured trying to break up a fight that erupted near the Powell Street cable car turnaround on
Sunday afternoon last Sunday. (Yes, we are late to the story. Sorry, folks.) Damoon Arman, 25, of Pleasanton allegedly started a verbal altercation with a 30-year-old Concord man "and began punching him," according to SF Examiner. As two nearby cops tried to stop the fight, "another man who had not been involved in the brawl swooped in and attacked the cops, punching one in the head and face — knocking him unconscious — and the other in the nose."
That third suspect has been identified as Jerry Lovette Young Jr., 25, of Tracy.
One officer "was knocked unconscious suffered a contusion," while the other was punched in the nose
Before failing to grasp the concept of laying low for awhile, Young and Arman, who were both on probation, were both arrested at the scene as a swarm of officers descended upon the melee. Both injured parties were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
