Four California-based US Marines are in hot water after being arrested after an incident involving a “negligent discharge of firearm likely to cause injury/death” outside of a Twentynine Palms bar on Sunday.
San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies were called to a fight at the local Break-N-Run bar when they received information that the suspects -US Marines- fled in a silver Nissan, firing a pistol into the air four or five times as they exited the parking lot. Several patrons and employees were in the parking lot at the time.
Upon sighting a vehicle matching the description, Deputy Jared Dominick conducted a felony traffic stop as the car turned into a Denny’s parking lot. He found the vehicle contained four occupants and two handguns.
All four men were booked into the Morongo Basin Jail. While three of the occupants were arrested on suspicion of being accessories to a felony and booked on $25,000 bail each, one occupant -25-year-old Marine Michael Jolly II- was booked on on suspicion of negligent discharge of a firearm, with bail set at $50,000.
According to ABC10, two of the Marines were released on bail, while two others are scheduled to appear in Morongo Superior Court on Wednesday.
