YOUNGSTOWN — Two men were charged about 1:30 a.m. Sunday outside Jay Jay’s bar on Market Street after a second night of fighting.

Police charged Eric D. Kaiser, 21, of Girard, with misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct and obstructing official business.

Police said that when they arrived, a shirtless Kaiser was on the sidewalk and was trying to get back into the bar to fight another person.

Ross J. Harris, no age or address available, arrived and tried to get around police to fight bar patrons on the sidewalk, according to police.

Harris told police he was not going to talk to them. Police then tried to stop him. Kaiser attempted to push officers away from Harris, police said.

Police then arrested both men.

Kaiser was then charged. Harris was given a minor misdemeanor citation on a disorderly conduct charge.

Police early Saturday arrived to find several hundred drunken people outside the bar and a 19-year-old man, also outside, who said another man had broken his leg.

Police said the man was taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center and told to press charges if he wanted to.
