TUCSON, Ariz. — Authorities say a ninth person has been arrested in last month’s assault of three people outside a Tucson bar.
Pima County Sheriff’s officials said Friday that 27-year-old Brittany Rene Walker Trostle was booked into jail on suspicion of three counts of aggravated assault.
One man was arrested in the case last Friday and seven other suspects were taken into custody Wednesday.
A fight occurred Feb. 17 outside the Outlaw Saloon after a 45-year-old woman, her 21-year-old son and a 40-year-old friend left the bar about 2:40 am.
The three stopped to smoke on their way to the parking lot. Authorities say a group came out of the bar, approached the trio and made antagonistic remarks directed at the woman’s son.
Witnesses say the taunting continued and escalated into a fight.
