Orange County sheriff’s deputies arrested a 20-year-old Marine from San Diego on Wednesday on suspicion of homicide for his role in a deadly St. Patrick’s Day fight at a Dana Point pizza restaurant, authorities said.
Jack Griffin Isaacson is suspected of fatally injuring 38-year-old Laguna Niguel resident Michael Terry during the March 17 fight, according to officials from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department. Terry died the next morning at a hospital.
According to sheriff’s officials, the two men got into a fight around 7 p.m. at Beach Harbor Pizza, a restaurant near the Dana Point Harbor. Deputies were sent to the restaurant, where they found Terry gravely injured; witnesses said the other man had fled prior to the deputies arriving on scene.
It was unclear if the two men knew each other prior to their altercation, officials said.
Terry died at a hospital around 10 a.m. the next morning, sheriff’s officials said. Sheriff’s homicide investigators later identified Isaacson as the suspect and took him into custody Wednesday.
Jail records showed Isaacson remained in custody Thursday afternoon in lieu of $1 million bail and was scheduled to appear in court Friday. A spokesperson for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department confirmed Isaacson is a Marine but did not know where he was stationed.
Officials from the Marine Corps could not immediately be reached for comment Thursday.
