Three men are arrested after an early morning altercation.

It happened at the Cozy Corner Cafe around 1 a.m.

Zanesville Police Department Lieutenant Bill Shaw says the three men had gotten into an argument, which escalated into a violent altercation. Bar employees forced the men outside and locked the doors to prevent them from coming back in.

An officer that was dispatched to the scene approached the men, who fled.

A second officer later located the men and arrested them for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

Shaw says one of the men, 24-year-old Kyle Wickham, was already wanted for several thefts.

The other two, 24-year-old John Hampton and 23-year-old William Hampton will be in Municipal Court this morning.
