Drunken bar patron hit with beer bottle in Kennewick

A 21-year-old Walla Walla woman was hit over the head with a beer bottle at a Kennewick bar after she reportedly wouldn't stop bumping a table next to her.

Kennewick police were called to The Beach on the 100 block of West Kennewick Avenue around 12:55 a.m. Sunday after a fight was reported, Officer Stan Howard said.

The woman apparently was highly intoxicated and was inside with some friends, Howard said. She kept bumping the table next to her and after repeated warnings to stop words were exchanged and an unknown suspect broke a beer bottle over her head, he said.

Some of the broken glass cut the woman's head but she didn't appear to be seriously injured, he said.

Bar security separated the parties, and the suspect left before police arrived.
