Watertown police arrest three in early morning street fights


Watertown police have made three arrests as the result of street fights that occurred early Thursday and Friday mornings.

Zakary T. Bell, 22, Fort Drum, is charged with attempted second-degree assault, fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon and resisting arrest, and Anthony L. Frezzo II, 20, of 22665 Lewis St., faces a harassment charge in connection with a disturbance at about 2:20 a.m. Friday in the 700 block of Huntington Street.

Police said Mr. Bell was wearing metal knuckles when he punched Travis P. Berkman, 26, Clayton.

Mr. Frezzo struck an officer, Nathan L. McKeever, during the fight, police alleged.
