BAKERSFIELD - Two off duty sheriff's deputies and a third suspect were arrested Wednesday after a fight.
Bakersfield police officers were dispatched to fight involving numerous subjects at Applebee’s Restaurant at the Marketplace at about 11:06 p.m. Wednesday.
Investigation revealed that three suspects were initially involved in a fight inside the business and several other patrons and employees attempted to separate the combatants, according to BPD spokesman Sgt. Joe Grubbs.
After the fight one of the suspects, Sean Curtis, 24, of Bakersfield, fled in a vehicle driven by Curtis’ girlfriend and was stopped by officers a short distance away, Sgt. Grubbs said.
The other two suspects, Christopher Saldana, 23, and Jonathan Nunez, 23, both of Bakersfield, who identified themselves as Kern County Sheriff’s Deputies, remained at the scene, Sgt. Grubbs said.

The deputies accepted their citizen arrests. Saldana and Curtis were arrested on charges of fighting in public, assault and public intoxication. Nunez was arrested on charges of fighting in public and assault. All were booked into the Kern County Jail.
