A Sacramento County Sheriff’s deputy suffered what appears to be a sprained ankle Monday during a scuffle with a man at an Arden Arcade bowling alley.

An employee of Country Club Lanes, 2600 Watt Avenue, told sheriff’s dispatchers about 4:30 a.m. Monday that someone was breaking into the liquor cabinet in the bowling alley’s Sky Room, a banquet room with a bar and dance floor.

When deputies arrived, they spoke with the man and he began to fight, according to a sheriff’s department spokeswoman. A deputy suffered an ankle injury and was transported to the hospital for X-rays.

It appears that the ankle was sprained. The suspected liquor thief was arrested but not on a theft charge.

Carl Christopher Randolph, 25, of Sacramento was booked on suspicion of resisting and outstanding warrants. Deputies were not able to determine intent on the theft or burglary suspicion since the room he was in is open 24 hours.
