Fresno Criminal Lawyer: Clovis Man Charged After Fight Outside Elbow Room In Fig Garden Village

Jan 17, 2014

A fight outside of the Elbow Room Restaurant in Fig Garden Village has left two 24-year-old men in serious trouble.

One man, the victim of the fight, is dealing with serious medical consequences. The second is facing very dire legal fallout.

Apparently, the two men knew each other and had had some kind of long-simmering feud since an altercation about a year ago, according to The Fresno Bee. When they saw each other outside the Elbow Room, they got into a fistfight.

The resulting melee put one man in the hospital. The other has been charged with felony assault and battery causing great bodily injury. He has claimed self-defense and will next appear in Fresno County Superior Court Jan. 24.

We do not condone violence. That being said, it certainly seems as though the truth as to what happened here has yet to be fully sorted out. As we said, the accused man has claimed self-defense, while friends of the injured man have said he was the instigator.

The accused man will likely need the services of a Fresno criminal lawyer. The charges against him are serious and if he is convicted, he will be looking at a punishment that will be very severe.

We handle cases from people around the Fresno area who have been accused of crimes. If you are interested in learning more about us and the work we do, please know that you can contact us. We would love to be considered as part of your research into whom you should have represent you.
