A San Carlos man convicted for an angry outburst at the Belmont Library last year had another in San Carlos on Tuesday, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

At 9:30 a.m., sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of an assault on a city employee at the City Hall Dog Park at 1401 San Carlos Ave., according to the sheriff’s office.

Deputies learned that Brent Bickel, 35, of San Carlos, assaulted a city employee and kicked a dog at the dog park. Several deputies sustained injuries while trying to arrest a combative Bickel, the sheriff’s office said.

Bickel was transported and booked into the Maguire Correctional Facility on charges of resisting a peace offer, obstructing an executive officer, animal cruelty, and battery.

In October last year, according to The Daily Journal, Bickel was sentenced to three years of supervised probation, 90 days in county jail and was required by the court to attend an anger management program following an incident at Belmont Library. Prosecutors say he drove dangerously into the library parking lot, threatened to kill a man who gave him a disapproving look, exposed himself to bystanders, and vandalized a woman’s car, causing an estimated $1,000 in damages, The Daily Journal reported.
