Man arrested for July bar fight
A Myrtle Beach man was arrested Monday morning on a warrant in connection with a July bar fight that started after he and the victim poured beer on one another, according to an incident report from the Myrtle Beach Police Department.
Krasimir Yavashev, 26, was booked on a warrant charging third-degree assault and battery by a mob. He reportedly arrived at the Myrtle Beach Police Department with his attorney to surrender.
Police said on July 24, Yavashev poured beer on the victim at Burger City Sports Bar, located at 1901 N. Kings Hwy., in Myrtle Beach.
The victim then poured his beer on Yavashev, which led to an argument that escalated into a fist fight. A security guard separated the two and escorted Yavashev outside, the report stated.
The victim went outside to call the police, and got into another argument with the suspect and another man. Yavashev allegedly pushed him to the ground and he and the second suspect began punching and kicking the victim, according to the report.
Both assailants left after the victim started yelling.
