BROWNSVILLE, Texas (ValleyCentral) — A teen was arrested in Brownsville following a fight at a local gym, police said.
Mathew Lopez, 18, was arrested on charges of criminal trespass and resisting arrest, according to a news release from the Brownsville Police Department.
On Tuesday, officers responded to the gym, located at the 800 block of Sunrise Blvd. in response to a fight. By the time officers arrived, the parties involved in the fight were already separated, the release stated.
Police learned that two people were fighting in the restroom before being separated.
“Mathew Lopez, suspect, was advised by management that he was no longer welcome at the location and had to leave,” the release stated.
Lopez was then escorted out of the building by an officer.
While officers went back inside for more information, Lopez re-entered the building and was found inside towards the back, police said.
