The two men wrestled at one point and when the man went to a bathroom, Young followed him, officials said. Deputies said Patrick then pushed the man's face into a mirror. 

Meanwhile, Beverly Young was arrested and charged with DUI after she was seen driving over a median while making a left turn. She was stopped by deputies and failed a field sobriety test just after 2 a.m. 

Authorities did not say if the two were in the car together.
