A Monroe County firefighter was arrested after a Friday night fist fight at the Looe Key Tiki Bar in Ramrod Key.
Dustin Hunt's victim told Monroe County deputies that Hunt started hitting him after he refused to give him a cigarette. The bartender helped to break up the fight.
Hunt told deputies that the other man had attacked him, but deputies said witnesses identified Hunt as the attacker. Hunt was arrested and faces a battery charge.
Deputies notified Monroe County Fire Chief James Callahan, who said Hunt could face disciplinary action.
