DENTON (KRLD) - A bar fight was the high point of the evening, for one North Texas guy.

Denton police were called to the scene of a fight at the Public House bar on Fry Street. Witnesses told police a man who was bumped by a passing employee smashed him in the face with a bottle, then hit another person in the head with it. Officers arrested the man, who faces assault charges. But Officer Bryan Cose says the suspect's night got a lot worse, after that.

"Officers were booking him into the City of Denton jail and as they were going through his property, inventorying everything, they found a couple of bags of cocaine in his wallet. So he picked up an extra charge of possession of a controlled substance."

The man faces a couple of misdemeanor assault charges for the bar fight, and a felony possession charge, for the cocaine.
