Arrest, injuries result from bar fight
Several cruisers responded to the British Beer Company in Hyannis for a report of a large fight.
HYANNIS - Several Barnstable Police units were called to the British Beer Company on Main Street in Hyannis around 11:30 p.m. for reports of a fight involving several people. One person was reportedly arrested. EMTs were called to evaluate three people, one of whom was apparently struck with a bottle. Two were taken to CCH. The disturbance came shortly after a New York Yankee's loss clinched the A.L. East for the Red Sox but it's not confirmed if the resulting revelry may have played a role. Barnstable Police charged 29-year old Donal McNulty of Quincy with assault and battery and malicious destruction of property. We'll bring you further details as we get them from Barnstable Police.
