You're at a bar in the wee hours with your wife, playing pool with two other patrons, when the number of balls your side in dropping in the pockets isn't sitting right with the competition. Seems like a good time to call it a night. At Bart's Pub in Garden Grove early Wednesday, the worst was yet to come.
After saying he wanted to quit playing at the establishment at 7052 Orangewood around 1:20 a.m., the unidentified man was instead confronted by the pair. A verbal altercation spilled into a bar fight, with the two losers beating the couple with fists and pool sticks.
By the time police arrived, the two men, who are now wanted for assault with a deadly weapon, had driven off in an unknown type vehicle.
