A San Diego Marine was arrested in Orange County on suspicion of homicide for his role in a St. Patrick's Day fight that led to another man's death.

Jack Isaacson, 20, was taken into custody Tuesday. Orange County Sheriff's Department investigators say he got into a fight with Michael Terry, 38, March 17 at Beach Harbor Pizza in Dana Point.

Terry, from Laguna Niguel, was taken to the hospital following the fight and died from his injuries the next morning. Deputies say Isaacson left the restaurant before deputies arrived.

Investigators don't know if Terry and Isaacson were familiar with each other before the fight, the OCSD said.

An OCSD spokesperson confirmed Isaacson is a Marine but was unable to confirm his assigned base. NBC 7 is reaching out to San Diego-area USMC bases for further information.

Anyone with information about the fight can contact the OCSD at 949-770-6011, or make an anonymous tip with OC Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-OCCS (1-800-847-6227) or online at occrimestoppers.org.
