SPRING VALLEY, Calif. (KGTV) - Three men were arrested in connection with a fight outside of a Spring Valley bar Saturday night that involved a pregnant woman.

Jeanette Bolin, who is a co-owner of Joycee's Cocktails, was disgusted by the brawl across from her bar.

"I think it's terrible," Bolin said.

Sheriff's detectives have been scanning surveillance video, so Bolin described the chaos caught on camera to 10News.

"It really looks like a freaking circus," she explained.

Detectives told 10News the Zuniga brothers -- 29-year-old Eulalio and 24-year-old Edwin -- and their 35-year-old uncle, Felipe, had been drinking all day at the bar. When they saw a pregnant woman walking across the street, they started hitting on her, according to detectives.

Detectives said the woman's husband confronted the men, but the confrontation escalated and turned violent.

One of the Zuniga brothers hit the husband's head with a plastic drainage cover. Then, his wife allegedly jumped in and started swinging.

"They hit the pregnant girl," Bolin said.

Bolin said the woman's mom ran out of the bar to protect her.

"Then another female customer went over there, and she got hit," Bolin added. "You just see people going down. You can see people fighting and going down on the ground."

The pregnant woman's husband is in the hospital with a severe head wound. It is unknown if the pregnant woman was seriously injured in the fight.

"We've been here for 27 years. It's always been a family bar," Bolin said. "It's like this neighborhood has gotten so bad. It's horrible."

The Zuniga brothers and their uncle were arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and booked into jail.

The Zuniga brothers bailed out of jail, but Felipe Zuniga, who 10News learned has priors, is still in jail.

The detective on the case is hoping that someone who saw the fight or recorded it on a cell phone will come forward.
