A combination of St. Paddy’s Day and birthday celebrations proved to be too much for a couple of city men at an Owen Sound watering hole this weekend.

Police were called to a downtown establishment just after last call at 2am.

A fight between two men celebrating their birthdays erupted inside the bar and then spilled outside after one of them hit the other over the head with a beer bottle then proceeded to continue to strike the victim with the broken glass.

Police say the 29 year old victim suffered major injury to his left ear and head but other patrons tended to his wounds until EMS arrived and transported him to the hospital.

Officers located and arrested the suspect at the scene without incident.

A 32 year old Owen Sound man is facing charges of assault with a weapon and aggravated assault.
