GLOUCESTER — Police arrested two Gloucester men, ages 21 and 22, on Rogers Street at about 12:50 a.m. Saturday after a patrol officer found the men fighting in the street, surrounded by onlookers, outside of the bar.

Police said George A. Doherty, 22, of Columbia Street and John M. Requejo, 21, of Cleveland Street were arrested on charges of assault and battery and disorderly conduct. Police said both men smelled of alcohol and “all parties were highly intoxicated.”

Police said officers initially handcuffed a third man, but removed the handcuffs from the 36-year-old Gloucester man and allowed him to go home after multiple witnesses said the man had only been trying to break up the fight.

Police arrested a 26-year-old Lynn man for driving without a license and failing to stop at a “stop” sign Saturday about 7:02 a.m.

Police said Saqueo E. Pojoy-Lopez was arrested at the corner of Essex Avenue and New Way Lane when police checked for his license, after stopping him for driving through the “stop” sign. It was then that the officer found the man was driving without a license.
