A Peninsula Creamery patron was arrested Sunday night after allegedly grabbing a waitress and punching two other customers who tried to come to her assistance.
Jorge Gonzalez, 28, of San Francisco was booked on charges of sexual battery, assault and battery, disturbing the peace, resisting arrest and being drunk in public, Palo Alto Police Sgt. Dave Flohr said.
The incident happened around 9:30 p.m. at the Emerson Street establishment, when Gonzalez allegedly grabbed the waitress. He was asked to leave the restaurant. While the waitress and a customer were escorting him outside, Gonzalez allegedly punched the customer, as well as a second customer who tried to help.
"There was a lot of alcohol involved," Flohr said. "The officers ended up having to wrestle with him and finally got him in custody."
