Man charged after fracas outside local bar

A San Lorenzo man has been charged with brandishing a knife following a scuffle outside a Pleasanton bar Saturday.

Brandon Alan Bucklin faces charges of brandishing a deadly weapon and public drunkenness followed the incident.

Pleasanton police Sgt. Penelope Tamm said officers driving by the Sunshine Saloon at about 1:35 a.m. Saturday noticed a crowd in the parking lot and pulled in to investigate. One man, who didn't want to be identified, told police another man had pulled a knife.

That led police to Bucklin, whom Tamm said was intoxicated.

"He was detained and during the search we found a folding knife," she said. The man who asked not to be identified later told police that Bucklin had pulled the knife during the argument.
