SOUTHINGTON — A fight at Tavern 42 in Plantsville led to three arrests this past weekend. 

Police issued a statement on the incident Tuesday.

It started as a verbal dispute among members of a large party seated in the restaurant.

A man police have yet to identify punched Hiran Sepulveda, 36, of Berlin, in the face causing multiple people including Raul Maldonado, 36, of Meriden, to get involved in pushing each other.

Security video from the restaurant shows the unidentified man fleeing out the back door of the restaurant with a woman.

After the initial disturbance, Maldonado took a plate from the table and swung it at the head of Marcus Jones, 32, of Hartford, police said.

There were no serious injuries.

Maldonado, Jones and Sepulveda were each charged with second degree breach of peace. Sepulveda was also charged with interfering with an officer. Maldonado and Jones were released on $2,500 bond. Sepulveda was released on $5,000 bond.

All three are due in New Britain Superior Court on Oct. 28.
