A bar shut down over the weekend after some brawls broke out…
Hazleton police closed the Prestigio Bar and Restaurant at 40 North
Wyoming Street after being summoned to quell two fights within a 2-hour
period Saturday night.
Police said the first fight, was around 7:30 p.m. when several customers
got into a brawl which included throwing bottles at each other leaving
one man hit in the head…
Police said the unidentified man sustained severe facial injuries and
went to the hospital…
The second incident started about 10 p.m. at the bar, then spilled out
onto Green street.

the scene before they arrived.
While investigating that incident officers saw another fight going on

    Close it down. I hope this was one establishment that had a camera installed. But, if the owners/managers can’t control “their house”, shut it down. There’s too much crime in Hazleton, as it is already, and we don’t need another hot bed for crime.
