Earlier this [Monday] morning an officer from the St. Cloud Police Department observed two men involved in a fight outside of McRudy’s Bar in St. Cloud.
According to the police report, after the officer announced he was a police officer the two men had to be physically separated by the officer to stop the fight. The two men involved in the fight were 22-year-old Marvin Glen Matthews and 22-year-old Jeffrey Fitzgerald Bias II both from St. Cloud.
After stopping the fight, Matthews started pushing the officer, grabbed his jacket and fell to the ground. A crowd of 40 to 50 people encircled the officer and Matthews, with some pulling at the officer’s jacket, interfering with the arrest. Pepper spray was used to move the crowd back and other officers assisted with the arrest and crowd control. Matthews was charged with disorderly conduct and obstructing the legal process and Bias II was charged with disorderly conduct.
Both were taken to the Stearns County jail and the officer did not receive any injuries.
