Police arrested a York City man for allegedly assaulting a Lancaster nightclub employee early Saturday morning during an all-out bar brawl.

Tyree Lamar Eatmon, 25, of 828 W. Poplar St., is accused of using a wooden table to hit the employee on the back of the head, according to Lancaster City Police.

Police said the large fight started inside the bar with patrons throwing bottles and tables, then spilled outside.

Eatmon will be charged with simple assault and disorderly conduct, Lancaster Police Lt. Todd Umstead said.

He remains free on $100,000 bail for a York City case in which he's charged with participating in a group assault during a Sept. 2 fracas outside Five Guys Burgers and Fries. Two people were shot during that fight.

Bar brawl: Lancaster City Police said Eatmon was at The Village nightclub, 205 N. Christian St., shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday when the brawl started.

City officers were doing a routine check there when they discovered the melee, police said.

All available officers and detectives responded to stop the brawl, police said, including five units from other nearby police departments.

The employee Eatmon allegedly assaulted escaped serious injury, police said, as did everyone involved. A Lancaster City officer suffered a minor elbow injury.

Police said a Hanover man also participated in the bar brawl. Jeremiha Hunter, 25, is being cited with public drunkenness and disorderly conduct.

York case: York City Police initially charged Eatmon with participating in the shooting of two people during the large Sept. 2 fight outside Five Guys, which was closed. One of those victims was critically injured.

Police later dropped those charges and filed new ones against Eatmon, who they said participated in a group assault on two men during the fracas.

Eatmon is charged with aggravated assault, simple assault and related offenses for allegedly being part of a group that beat Niam Jamison and Donald Layton Jr. The two men were repeatedly punched, kicked and boot-stomped by members of the city's south-side crew, York City Police have said.

Jamison and Layton are affiliated with the city's Parkway crew, according to detectives. "Crews" are loosely organized neighborhood gangs.

George Marros, Eatmon's attorney, has said he doesn't believe Eatmon's actions outside Five Guys rose to the level of felony aggravated assault.
