MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office is investigating an incident that happened on Friday, April 14, around 10 p.m. at the North Point parking lot near Bradford Beach.

Sheriff's deputies were closing down the North Point parking lot.

While a deputy was arresting a suspect, they were punched by a different suspect, who was soon restrained by a second deputy, and also arrested.
