A bar patron was slugged in the face with a beer stein during an unprovoked attack by a Temecula man who was later arrested, a sheriff’s spokesman said today.
Sheriff’s deputies went to Hard Hat’s Sports Bar & Grill in the 27000 block of Jefferson Avenue in Temecula after receiving a 7:20 p.m. call Friday about an assault with a deadly weapon report, Riverside County sheriff’s Sgt. Dean Spivacke said.
The patron — identified as a 48-year-old Sun City resident — suffered cuts and a broken nose.
The patron wrote down the license plate number of the car his alleged attacker drove.
A deputy on patrol spotted the driver, later identified as Michael James Osborne, and pulled him over, Spivacke said.
Osborne, 32, was arrested for suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon but was released from jail Saturday after posting $25,000 bail, according to online jail records.
