One man has been charged following a fight that shattered a window at a York Road Subway store in Precinct 6/Towson early Saturday morning.

Police have charged 26-year-old Jonathan Tyler Pugh of the 200 block of West Seminary Avenue 21093, with disorderly conduct, destruction of property and disturbing the peace. He was released on his own recognizance.

At 1:49 a.m., an officer on foot patrol observed a fight involving two men at Subway store in the 400 block of York Rd 21286. The officer saw Pugh pushing the other man through the Subway's glass window. The officer saw the men hit a table that subsequently hit the window, breaking it.

The fight was captured on a citizen's cell phone video and has been widely circulated.

The officer helped the man that he believed to be the victim from the window and took Pugh into custody. The man who was not arrested was uncooperative and left the scene before his identity could be verified. As a result of the video and other investigation, additional charges may be pending against one or both men.

Both participants received minor injuries during the fight. Both declined transportation to a medical facility.
