7 more people arrested in assault outside Ariz bar

Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say seven more people have been arrested in last month's assault of 3 people outside a Tucson bar.

Pima County Sheriff's officials say six men and one woman were booked into jail Wednesday on suspicion of 3 counts of aggravated assault.

Another man was arrested in the case last Friday. Authorities said at that time that more arrests were anticipated.

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.
