Man apparently drowns after bar fight.

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — Authorities in Bridgeport say a man apparently has drowned after getting into a fight outside a restaurant overnight.

Bridgeport city spokesman Brett Broesder said Saturday morning that a second person who left the scene is being sought in connection with the incident.

He said police were called at around 1:15 a.m. about a fight outside Chubby’s bar & Grill, which is located on the Bridgeport-Fairfield city line. The two people apparently fell into the water behind the restaurant as a result of the fight.

Broesder said no weapons were believed to be involved and there’s no connection to the Vibes Concert in Bridgeport.

Anyone with information is asked to call Bridgeport police at 203-576-1311.
