Police responded to a fight Wednesday night involving three family members at a downtown Pittsburgh bar.
Authorities said two sisters and a niece got into a fight at Lee Tuck Lounge on Steuben Street around 11 p.m. Wednesday.
According to police, the incident started as a verbal argument and quickly turned physical.
Police said both sisters were drinking and accused each other of starting the fight.
The three women involved told officers varying stories, so police are still investigating the entire situation.
Witnesses told Channel 11’s Renee Kaminski that Wednesday wasn’t the first time the three women fought inside the bar.
“The bar manager is upset by this,” bar customer Lisa Gallagher told Kaminski. “She’s a quiet, gentle woman. She takes care of people and is older herself.”
Police said 31-year-old Leah Stevenson, 51-year-old Kimberly Stevenson and 46-year-old Linda Witherspoon were all arrested and charged with aggravated assault.
The incident remains under investigation.
