A female security guard at Francesca's Sports Bar was injured as she and others tried to stop a bar fight that ensued after one o'clock in the Saturday morning.
The bar located at 2135 Old Middlefield Way in Mountain View had presented Oakland-based rapper Philthy Rich as its headliner that night and the bar was packed with revelers from across the region.
After artist Philthy Rich finished his set and left the premises around 1:13 a.m., bar patrons began to leave. A t first it appeared that the night would end without incident, however the Mountain View Patch Editor observed that at about 1:20 a.m. one of the three female bartenders exited the bar and told two Mountain View Police officers standing at the door that they needed to go inside because there was a fight.

Patch, from outside the bar, saw people begin to rush outside and through the open door saw blood drip down the female security guard's face—even as she continued to try and pull people apart. Then the door closed, but not before a MVPD detained one man leaving the bar for questioning. He was later released.
And though there had been at least four patrol vehicles already in the area almost immediately more cops arrived to help quell the tense situation. Some officers entered the bar to stabilize fight and other attended to other altercations in the parking lot.
Paramedics with Engine No. 3 of the Mountain View Fire Department were called in to assist the wounded female. Another male security guard was observed putting ice to his head and exclaim that it was because of a bottle. He declined any medical assistance. No one left by ambulance.
A sergeant with the MVPD told Patch after the incident had de-escalated that there had been no arrests that night.
