Orange County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a 20-year-old San Diego Marine on Wednesday on suspicion of manslaughter for his role in a deadly St. Patrick’s Day scandal at Dana Point pizzeria, authorities said.
Jack Griffin Isaacson is suspected of fatally injuring 38-year-old Laguna Nigel resident Michael Terry during the March 17 brawl, according to Orange County Sheriff’s Office officials. Terry died the next morning in hospital.
According to sheriff’s officials, the two men had a fight around 7pm at Beach Harbor Pizza, a restaurant near Dana Point Harbor. The deputies were sent to the restaurant, where they found Terry seriously injured. Eyewitnesses said the other man fled before lawmakers arrived at the scene.
It was not clear if the two men knew each other before their altercation, officials said.
Terry died at the hospital around 10 a.m. the next day, sheriff’s officials said. Sheriff’s homicide investigators later identified Isaacson as a suspect and remanded him in custody Wednesday.
Prison records showed that Isaacson remained in custody Thursday afternoon, instead of a $ 1 million bail, and was due to appear in court on Friday. A spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that Isaacson was a Marine, but did not know where he was.
Officers from the Marine Corps could not be reached for comment on Thursday.
