SAN ANTONIO – One person was arrested and another was hospitalized after a Christmas Day celebration at The Well turned into chaos.

The incident happened around 2 a.m. Thursday at the bar located in the 5400 block of UTSA Boulevard, a police sergeant at the scene said.

Police said the incident started when the crowd began to leave the bar, and at least 25 police units were called for crowd control.

One man, who appeared to be drunk, was found injured and was transported to University Hospital in stable condition. Police are investigating if someone from the bar beat him up in the parking lot.

A separate family violence incident led to the arrest of another man, police said.

While officers were on scene, a driver crashed into police cruisers in the parking lot.

Later around 4 a.m., a driver who left The Well rammed into the back of an SAPD patrol car in the 3100 block of Thousand Oaks, according to an officer at that scene.

The officer’s vehicle was parked while she attended to a vehicle from an earlier accident. The officer was not injured.

The driver was detained for suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission is now reviewing The Well’s license.
