San Mateo man found guilty of beating outside bar
August 06, 2014, 05:00 AM

A jury found a 26-year-old San Mateo man guilty of beating a man outside a bar and throwing a brick at his head in a Redwood City courtroom on Monday.

Ernesto Pedro Lopez was drinking at Steamies Bar in San Mateo after a 49ers game on Jan. 19 with two men and two women when the victim began talking to the women, according to San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

Lopez and the men became angry and started to argue with the victim; the conflict moved out to the street and escalated into a fight with the victim being beaten, Wagstaffe said.

A passing emergency medical technician witnessed Lopez throw a brick at the victim; one of the other men used another brick to beat the victim twice in the head, Wagstaffe said. The victim was seriously injured, Wagstaffe said.

The two other men were convicted of felony assault, and Lopez is due back in court on Sept. 19 for sentencing, Wagstaffe said.
