A man was arrested after allegedly stabbing another man four times at a bar in Santa Rosa Saturday night, police said. Officers responded to a report of a fight between two patrons at the Wagon Wheel Saloon, located at 3320 Mendocino Ave., at about 9:35 p.m., police said.
An investigation revealed that Donald Lee Mastroianni, 53, of Santa Rosa, was drunk and threw a beer bottle at a female bartender, police said. Brian Teager, 52, of Santa Rosa, came to the aid of the bartender, and Mastroianni came at him with a knife, stabbing him four times – three in the leg, one in the hand, according to police. His injuries are not considered life-threatening.
Teager struck Mastroianni with a pool cue before other patrons broke up the fight and detained Mastroianni until officers arrived, police said. Mastroianni was arrested and booked into jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon causing great bodily injury, police said.
