Police said that about 11:45 on Thursday night, they were on mobile patrol in the San Pedrito area, where they intervened and broke up a fight between two men, one of whom was identified as Charles Peebles.

Police reported that Charles Peebles had an object in a black plastic bag in his right hand, and they took it away from him.
