A woman was arrested early Monday morning after she reportedly assaulted another woman and a bar manager with a beer bottle.

Bianca Flores, 26, was charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony.

The reported assault happened at 12:30 a.m. Monday at Halftime Bar and Grill located at 2120 Andrews Highway, an Odessa Police Department affidavit detailed.

OPD officers were reportedly dispatched to an off-duty officer requesting additional units for a fight. Officers watched video security footage of Flores and 25-year-old Samantha Lozano getting into an argument inside of the bar.

The women began to push each other and then Flores struck Lozano in the head and face multiple times with a beer bottle, the affidavit stated. Esaul Cano, 45, the bar manager, stepped in to attempt to break up the fight and Flores took the beer bottle and struck him in the back of the head.

Officers reportedly saw a large amount of swelling on Lozano’s forehead and a cut over her left eye. Cano also had a swelling and redness to the back of his head.

Flores was arrested, charged and transported to the Ector County Law Enforcement Center. She had two bonds totaling $100,000 and posted bail Monday, jail records show.
