Firefighters arrested after post-game bar fight: Police


Three New York firefighters were arrested after a heated bar fight turned violent near Citi-Field Friday evening, police said.

The scuffle occurred inside of McFadden’s Restaurant and Saloon just before 8:30 p.m., the New York Daily News reported.

The three firefighters — Michael Profeta, 34, John Martin, 33, and Anthony Cardazone, 43 — all faced charges of assault and disorderly conduct. Cardazone was also charged with resisting arrest.

The incident began when the victim and Cardazone began to argue, prompting Profeta and Martin to grab the man from behind, the New York Post reported.

The report cited one unnamed police source who called Cardazone’s attitude toward officers at the scene as “tumultuous” and “combative.”

The victim was reportedly hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries, including swelling and lacerations to his face
