A man suffered what appeared to be a broken jaw in a fistfight in a Main Street nightclub either late on Monday or early on Tuesday, the Park City Police Department said.
Phil Kirk, a police captain, said an officer was called to the Park City Medical Center at 3:52 a.m. on Tuesday. He said it was not clear when the confrontation occurred.
Kirk said the victim, a 25-year-old man from Rock Springs, Wyo., arrived at the hospital with an injury that seemed to be a broken jaw.
The man told the police he was inside a nightclub on Main Street with a friend when he became involved in a confrontation with someone else inside. A fistfight ensued before staffers at the nightclub broke it up, Kirk said. The captain said the other person was the aggressor.
The victim and his friend went to the hospital after the Wyoming man complained of pain in his jaw area, according to Kirk.
Kirk said the victim is described as a black man who frequents the nightclub where the fight occurred. The victim was considering whether to press charges, Kirk said.
Kirk said alcohol-related cases are frequently reported on Main Street, but a fistfight like the one the victim described is "not very common."
