Police responded to a reported fight between three men at The Wheel on Arrow Highway, late Sunday night.

Two men were arrested at The Wheel, 921 West Arrow Highway, while a third received mild lacerations in the fight and was transported to an area hospital, said Sergeant Mike Randazzo of Glendora Police.

Authorities received a 911 call about the fight ay 11:16 p.m. Glendora officers were involved in two calls during the fight and requested Azusa Police to respond to The Wheel, Randazzo said.

According to Police broadcast traffic, a large contingent of Azusa officers responded, set a perimeter around the bar and eventually had everyone remaining in the bar exit. Glendora Police eventually responded and formed a search team to clear the interior of the bar.

Police arrested Daniel Garkow, 50, from Covina, and Ronald Baker, 46, from Orange, both on suspicion of battery. Both were issued citations.

It was not immediately known what initiated the fight.

Why is this news? It has probably happened twenty times at twenty bars every weekend.

The antagonistic guy that started the whole altercation should be arrested and charged with calling in a false report. No weapons were used or found. He started a fight with a couple of guys. Then was asked to leave the bar, got angered and decided to call Azusa P.D. and because The Wheel is in Glendora, G.P.D. also responded. He claimed there were guns and knives which were not the case. In addition all the costs for all the agencies and the helicopter too! He should be charged with the bill!
