JUNEAU - A melee that Juneau police think may have begun in a Front Street bar early Sunday morning before spilling into the street resulted in charges against four men, while two others were transported to Bartlett Regional Hospital for treatment.

Police said they responded to a report of a large fight involving numerous people in front of an unidentified downtown bar at 2:55 a.m. Sunday morning.

The first officers on scene were unable to get the combatants to comply with orders to stop fighting and backup officers were called. Pepper spray was used on several, and a Tasar was deployed on at least one of the fighters, police said.

Arrested and charged with assault were Albert Nauer, 23, and Charlie Gallant, 21, while Navy Nauer, 40, and Rudolph Nauer, 25, were charged with interfering with a police officer. All the charges are Class A misdemeanors.

Taken to the emergency room were two males, one 24 years old and the other 30 years old.

The 24-year-old man was the victim of one of the assaults and sustained a possible fractured jaw. The 30-year-old man sustained abrasions and bruising to his face but refused to provide the police with any information. Both were treated and released.

Police provided no residence information about any of the suspects or victims, but most appear to be from Juneau.

Three of the four subjects arrested were lodged at Lemon Creek Correctional Center. The fourth was provided a summons and released at the scene.
