A Capri Elementary School parent is accused of slashing another parent’s face with a broken bottle at a fundraiser for the school over the weekend.
The alleged incident occurred on March 25 at the Hilton Del Mar, where the Encinitas school’s PTA was hosting its Run for the Roses Spring Auction Gala. What was advertised as a “fun evening out with other Capri Families” turned violent when a fight allegedly broke out between the two fathers.
“There was a dispute between two parties,” said Officer Billy Hernandez of the San Diego Police Department, which is handling the case. “During the dispute, the victim was struck in the face with a glass.”
Paul Pfingst, the suspect’s attorney, said his client was provoked when the victim insulted the client’s wife.
"His wife was subjected to intolerable insults and that was caused this whole sorry event to take place,” Pfingst said, adding he would not repeat the comments that were made.
