ST. PETE BEACH – A man armed with a screwdriver injured a patron at MacNasty’s Sports Bar & Grill in St. Pete Beach about 2:20 a.m. Monday, June 23.

Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Christopher J. Forrester, 29, of St. Petersburg for aggravated assault.

Deputies responded to a call about an armed subject at MacNasty’s Sports Bar & Grill, 6295 Gulf Blvd. in St. Pete Beach and was told that Forrester had fled the area after a physical altercation with Jason Sefick, 36, also of St. Petersburg.

Sefick told deputies that he and Forrester were in a fight when he realized he was bleeding from his head. He then noticed Forrester had a screwdriver in his hand. Stefick was able to break away, return to the bar and call for assistance. Forrester fled the scene leaving behind his sandals and sunglasses. Deputies also located the screwdriver that Forrester used to attack Stefick.

Deputies requested a K9 unit and set up a perimeter. K-9 Deputy Matt Aitken, 31, and K9 Bosco arrived on scene and initiated a track, which led them through several parking lots and then north along the beach. They continued a quarter mile north along the beach jumping several fences.

K9 Bosco then alerted to the bushes where they successfully located Forrester. He was taken into custody and treated at the scene for punctures to his left thigh and left calf, which resulted from the police K9 apprehension, according to the sheriff’s report.

Forrester was transported to the Pinellas County Jail. Bond was set at $10,000. Sefick was treated by paramedics at the scene.
