When they separated the fighting individuals, there was allegedly a strong odor of alcohol coming from Jamie Ray Clasen, 32, of Iowa City. Police said Clasen admitted to drinking 12 beers.
He and Alexander Michael Six, 30, of Waterloo, were allegedly fighting with Marshall Lee Karr, 19, of Traer. Police said the subject of the altercation was a piece of pizza.
