BRAWLEY — A 21-year-old Brawley man was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon Sunday after he allegedly used nunchakus during a fight with another man.
Pedro Gutierrez Archuleta, 21, of Brawley was booked into the county jail with his bail set at $20,000. He remained in custody this morning.
Brawley police Lt. Henry Graham said the incident occurred about 6 p.m. when a fight reportedly broke out between Archuleta and Ernest Fernandez, 46, of Brawley.
According to Graham, Archuleta told police the fight occurred because Fernandez's sister had broken out a window in Archuleta's car.
Graham said police had no information to substantiate Archuleta's claim.
During the fight, Archuleta allegedly brandished nunchakus, a martial arts weapon considered a deadly weapon. Archuleta reportedly hit Fernandez in the head with the weapon.
