Street Fight Ends in Arrest

Release Date: November 1, 2011
SMSO Case #11-5210


Half Moon Bay, California: On Monday October 31, 2011, deputies were dispatched to "More for Less" parking lot located at 501 Kelly Avenue in Half Moon Bay regarding a physical altercation between several men.  Prior to the deputies’ arrival, County Communications advised responding units the men were fighting with baseball bats and had started to break windows.

Upon arrival deputies saw three men and one woman standing in front of the business yelling at each other.  Deputies noticed one man had a silver colored baseball bat in his hands and was walking backwards and looking at the other men who were swearing at him and walking towards him.  As the deputy exited his marked patrol vehicle, he was told that the two men (Paul and Jesse Williams) were beating up the other man (Jorge Flores).

Paul Williams was arrested for Vandalism, smashing the windshield of a car and Public Intoxication.  Jesse Williams was believed to have been struck in the head with the baseball bat and was in and out of consciousness, so paramedics transported him to Stanford Hospital for further treatment.

Anyone who may have witnessed this event or who believes they may have information concerning the investigation are encouraged to contact Sheriff’s Detective Jim Gilletti at 650-363-4066 or telephone the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office Anonymous Tip Line at (800) 547-2700.
